At the dawn of the twenty-first century, elBulli restaurant revolutionized the world of gastronomy, making chef Ferran Adrià the king of haute cuisine and catapulting him into the rarified space of global celebrity with the distinction of being the World’s Greatest Chef. Behind such a success was an unrecognized creative genius: Ferran's younger brother, Albert, also known as the World’s Most Underrated Chef. Laura Collado and Jim Loomis document the opening of Enigma, the crown of Albert’s gastronomic empire, which had the clear goal of becoming one of the best restaurants in the world. The film chronicles Albert's attempt to escape the shadow of the legendary elBulli and enter the Pantheon of great chefs. Prepare to be dazzled by this no-holds-barred exploration of Albert Adrià’s journey to articulate his paradigm-shifting culinary vision.—Various sources
