Burning Man (2011)

Directed by: Jonathan Teplitzky
Country: Australia / UK

Plot: An English chef with a chic restaurant on Bondi Beach trying to put his life back on track.
Review: Jonathan Teplitzky returns with “Burning Man”, eight years after his two first releases (“Better Than Sex” and “Gettin’ Square”) haven’t been very well accepted in general. There are significant improvements in this irreverent movie, showing how hard the life can be for a couple, when one of them is struggling with cancer. It showed something fresh and bold but perhaps its structure needed a different approach. The hero is Mathew Goode, who has an effervescent performance. Sufficient solidness.
