On ne meurt pas la bouche pleine
ADAPTATION OF A POLICE THRILLER – CO-WRITER THIERRY MARX
A father and daughter, both international Michelin-starred chefs. Revenge for crimes committed in the early 80s. Yakuzas dying one after the other. A cop hanging in there in an unusual culinary investigation. Molecular gastronomy and plants unleashed as sensual weapons of destruction.
Such are the ingredients of this thriller set between France and Japan. Paris and Tokyo are the central locations. The series tracks the criminals through these two legendary cities, through darkness and light, drawing the viewer into the worlds of art and gastronomy with the help of a cast of entirely original characters.
A police investigation is like good food – it takes time. Time to ripen, time to perhaps ferment a little. Does it always have to turn rotten at the end?
