A story about love, misunderstanding and food set in Poland and directed by a native of Japan! The Taste of Pho follows a Warsaw-based, widowed Vietnamese cook who struggles to fit into the European culture, which his ten-year-old daughter has already embraced as her own, even though Vietnamese people make up one of the country’s biggest ethnic minorities. The film was originally scheduled to be the closing night film of Belmont World Film’s International Film Series this year.
