The Taste of Desire

Director: Willemiek Kluijfhout
Poetic voyage around the world that tastes like more, from Japan and Sweden to France, England and the US, with the oyster as a metaphor for human passion and desires.
A cinematic voyage around the world, with five personal stories, all linked to the oyster. From a burlesque artist in New York with an famous oyster act, two French top chefs, a Swedish woman retrained as an oyster diver and a Japanese artist to a critically ill English psychologist hoping to finish his life’s work - a book on oysters – in time. How far are we prepared to go to satisfy our desires?
