At the boiling point

Original language: English

Boiling Point

The most intense evening of the year in one of the "hottest" restaurants in London. Charismatic and demanding chef Andy Jones walks the knife's edge. A series of personal and professional crises can destroy everything he has achieved through hard work. The restaurant is almost full, and an unexpected visit from the hygiene inspectorate further increases the tension in the kitchen team. Jones does his best to defuse the growing tension between the team and the managers while trying to meet the absurd demands of the customers.

"Intense and incredibly engaging, 'On the Boiling Edge' develops the familiar theme of burnout with minimal understatement. As if from the first hand, the film accurately conveys the essence of the problem through the everyday life of a famous chef working in London, full of stress and environmental pressure. The restaurant's hyperactive environment and unrest are captured in one long shot style. The film perfectly conveys the overloaded energy of this universe." (Marija Fridinovaitė)
