Mediterranean Food

Sofia's story, the best chef the world, and the two men who helped her to become a legend. Or how a trio can work.

This is a fun romantic-comedy. Sofia (Olivia Molina) has been raised working in her parents’ small family restaurant. She can't make up her mind between two men she's known since childhood. Toni (Paco León) is faithful, hardworking and perfect husband material. Frank (Alfonso Bassave) is a slick, handsome jet-setter who is in the same profession of food service as Sofia. Frank has upscale industry connections and realizes Sofia has the talent at cooking to be a five-star chef. Sofia wants to follow her dreams of owning an upscale restaurant and knows that Frank has the keys to helping her but she also does not want to lose Toni. The three come to an unlikely arrangement that will keep them all together. So being in a trio does more than raise a few eyebrows from family and friends. Interesting how they at first tried to hide their relationship to finally almost flaunting it.

Interesting that the same actress, Olivia Molina, that plays Sofia, is also involved in a trio in the Spanish TV series Física o Química (“Physical or Chemical)”.

There was so much frontal nudity and sex scenes that I wondered about the film classification. It is recommend for age seven and older here in Spain. It was would be given an “R” in the US.

Filming locations:

  • Arenys de Mar
  • Barcelona
  • Canet de Mar
  • Mataró, Barcelona
  • Pineda de Mar
  • Sant Pol de Mar

All, except Barcelona, are in the same comarca (county) where I live, Maresme.

The final scene shows the trio opening a new Sofia’s restaurant with Ayer’s Rock in the background.

Since the story was about food service, there were mentions of some Spain’s famous chefs and their restaurants. They also appeared in the credits at the end of the film.

Julie & Julia

I have heard of the movie, but haven't seen it yet. I don't know if it is available here.
