Again returning to the world of sounds, this follows a group of "sonic caterers" (audio performance artists who play with food, is perhaps the best way to describe them - including Asa Butterfield and Ariane Labed) in a residency run by an eccentric benefactor (Gwendoline Christie) and chronicled - and indeed narrated - by a dietarily-troubled journalist (Makis Papadimitriou).

Channelling the Greek Weird Wave in some respects while also perhaps tipping a hat a little to Peter Greenaway (especially with all the

Enjoyed this a lot!

I got hold of this a few days ago, but the narrated parts weren't subtitled so I ceased my viewing.

I assume those parts are meant to be subtitled?

Indeed they are - frustratingly most subtitles seem to eschew subtitling the narration, or at least just say "Speaking Greek", which is particularly odd because the rest of it is in English. It took me a good few minutes to locate a set of subtitles with everything included. If you like I can send that to you?
