Master Cheng
Director:Mika Kaurismäki
Cert:PG Year: 2019 Length:114mins
Country:Finland/China Language:Finish/Mandarin
This gentle comedy of a clash of cultures and catering in Finland charmed a group of seasoned film professionals at a recent screening weekend and is set to entertain us here in Cumbria.

Cheng, a skilled chef, arrives in Finland looking for a mysterious man from his past. Largely ignored by the locals, only Sirkka, the café owner is prepared to help.

“Easy to watch and easy to like, Master Cheng isn't just about comfort food, it is comfort food, a scenically sumptuous, heart-warming food-based film with its heart and its menu in the right place.”
