The Grand Hotel Ballet


At an upscale hotel restaurant, students of the Grenoble hotel-management school are trained to serve, clean, and cook to the standards of luxury hotels and Michelin-star restaurants. Half musical, half documentary, with improvised rhythms in the kitchen and secrets shared behind the scenes, they sing us their curriculum. Carry one’s self well, welcome others, flawlessly follow orders, smile: how naturally does that come to 17-year olds?
