Fans of culinary drama will be able to get another delicious bite thanks to a new Netflix film.

Hunger has been described as ‘The Menu meets Whiplashby one fan after they tucked into the Thai -psychological thriller.

Now available to stream, the movie has been rated an impressive 71 percent fresh on Rotten Tomatoes thanks to its stunning cinematography.

If that’s not enough to whet your appetite, here is a brief synopsis of the film.

It opens with Aoy (played Chutimon Chuengcharoensukying) as she works in her family’s noodle shop and as she serves the neighbourhood she grew up in.

Having worked up an appetite for something more, she accepts an offer to work for cutthroat chef Paul (Nopachai Chayanam) in his luxury restaurant.

Named Hunger, the establishment makes Hell’s Kitchen look like kindergarten as Aoy is berated at every possible opportunity.

As she struggles to earn her place in the culinary world, it seems she may have bitten off more than she can chew as she loses herself in a world of luxury and excess.

The film will have you wanting to ‘eat the rich’ after sampling the thriller, with its sense of suspense, unsettling themes and some epic food porn.

It’s hard not to devour everything on the screen as director Sitisiri Mongkolsiri creates some delicious horror-esque imagery.

This is pretty impressive given Hunger’s epic two and half hour run time, with very little let-up in the tense thriller.

In fact, the only palate cleanser is Aoy’s moments with her father and two siblings who desperately try to keep the young chef cool as she struggles from the heat of the kitchen.
