Who Is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe? Storyline

Blessed with a delicate tongue and a biting wit, Max Vandervere, revered editor of Epicurus Magazine, has chosen the courses for the world’s most fabulous meal and the four chefs who created them. Among them are the ravishing Natasha O’Brien, famed for her pastry, and Louis Kohner, whose baked pigeons are nonpareil. Murder suddenly darkens the gourmet world when Louis is found baked to death in London and suspicion falls on Natasha and her ex-husband Robby Ross, a fast-foods franchiser who is trying to convince the great chefs of Europe to lend their names to his chain of omelet shops. Max then sends Natasha to Venice to interview renowned lobster chef Fausto Zoppi for a fish course, but he, too, is found dead, drowned in his lobster tank. Clearly, the murders are connected to Max’s ultimate menu.—Happy_Evil_Dude

Who Is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe? Movie Reviews

A funny farce, failed by poor DVD product.

I loved this delightful farce, when it came out in the theaters, decades ago. Segal, Bisset, and Morley, are a joy to watch. I waited for years fro the DVD format to hit the shelves. What a disappointing experience. The disc is not letterbox, nor closed captioned, there is NO Menu, and looks no better than a VSH tape. There is a disclaimer, in fine print, that the DVD will only play on DVD “Play only” devices, and may not play on your PC. WD cheaped out on this product. The story is filled with fine foods, kitchen antics, and rapid fire funnies. It was filmed on location all over Europe. The grizzly murders,are shocking. The many characters are played broadly, but then this a comedy. Well worth your time.

A Meal of Murder

“Who Is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe?” offers up a tasty recipe, combining mystery with laughs. This movie is peppered with colorful characters, such as Max, the snobbish English gourmand magazine editor, Robbie, the brash American fast food magnate, and a host of eccentric chefs. And you also get a feast for the eyes, with colorful views of London, Paris and Venice, and lush images of haute cuisine. This movie is satisfying, and perhaps will leave you hungry for more!

Delightfully offbeat comedy-mystery

This is one of those films that grow on you gradually. In the first 20 minutes or so, it is a straight comedy and it feels rather forced; Robert Morley may be ideally cast as the obese and pompous food critic, but his pomposity comes dangerously close to obnoxiousness. The film starts to get better when the mystery elements are introduced, and the comedy becomes more satirical (the French top chefs welcome their own murders if they will prove that they were the best of their profession!); the offbeat mix of genres ultimately works, perhaps because it IS so offbeat – it pushes you a little out of your comfort zone. George Segal and Jacqueline Bisset share a wonderfully quirky chemistry – neither of them is particularly likable as a character individually, but somehow they make a very likable couple! This is perhaps the first time I’ve seen the classy Bisset do comedy, and she gives more snap to some of her lines than there is on paper (I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that it’s one of her own favorite performances, because it relies only minimally on her looks). At the end, even Morley’s character becomes sort of endearing. Oh, and another great score by Henry – “Pink Panther” – Mancini. *** out of 4.
