Meryl Streep a redonné vie à Julia Child. Et ce n'est pas une imitation grotesque, c'est vraiment Julia Child des années 60-70 qui nous apparait. L'histoire est plausible, ayant lu la biographie de Madame Child, même si c'est parfois arrangé avec le "gars des vues".

On reste un peu sur notre faim (et ce n'est pas un jeu de mots) avec la fin. Mais que voulez-vous, le film étant basé sur une histoire réelle, il en est ainsi de la fin

Any Adams est aussi excellente. Je la trouve bien chanceuse de "garder sa ligne" cependant en se tapant à tous les jours ses excellents repas....

I purchased this movie (tongue in cheek) because my wife insisted I buy something " girly" after watching Inglourious Basterds. I did not expect the film to be as watchable as it was. Meryl Streep did a wonderful rendition of Julia Child . She had the voice and gestures dead on. Amy Adams, although hopelessly outclassed by Streep and boring at the beginning gave a very strong, funny, realistic performance. The only sad note , understated in the film , was the real Julia Child's refusal to credit Julie's efforts. It sort of boggles the mind to think of Julia Child as petty. Perhaps it was presented to her in a different light. Perhaps being in her nineties she did not understand. Perhaps she saw the whole thing a a ploy to ride on her own hard won reputation. We will never know. Well worth the money and time to watch.

Excellent movie following Julie who walked in the footsteps of chef Julia Child by cooking all the meals in Julia Child's cookbook. The directors did an excellent job following both Julie and Julia through their lives simultaneously which made the movie most interesting. I highly recommend this movie!

I like Meryl Streep, so that factor allows me to rate this film as 'ok'. I found it very drawn out and not alot of action, and quite hum drum. Not her best choice of films.

A great family movie! A great performance by Meryl Streep (as usual), she captured the spirit and eccentricity of the great Julia Child wonderfully.

Absolutely delightful! I've seen this film 3 times and it's wonderful. Brilliant, even. Meryl Streep can do anything!
