Sergio Herman, FUCKING PERFECT

 
 
 

On December 22th 2014 topchef Sergio Herman took a rather radical decision to close down his renowned, three star restaurant ‘Oud Sluis’. ‘Trueworks’ started filming Sergio Herman during a very turbulent year, a year that brought some big changes. Director Willemiek Kluijfhout (L’Amour des moules 2012) followed our chef from march 2013 untill the summer of 2014. The big turning point is the closure of his restaurant Oud Sluis.

The documentary shows us Sergio Herman, but also the man behind the chef. It shows us Sergio’s huge drive, his daily aim for perfection and beauty and the sacrafices that go with it.

Not only will we live through Sergio’s emotions by closing Oud Sluis, we will feel the thrill of opening his new establishment The Jane in Antwerp.

The Jane Antwerp

In a former chapel on the site of an old military hospital, Sergio Herman opened the doors to his new restaurant on march 25th 2014: The Jane. The first title of the restaurant was La Chapelle. After a few months he decided to change it.

“It’s effectively a person now: Jane. For us it’s a woman that loves to eat, loves to travel, loves design and art. It’s our woman. You can feel comfort, style, design. It’s nice and cosy.”

‘Fucking Perfect’ is expected in the theaters in Februari 2015. VPRO will broadcast the movie in june 2015. You can follow up on inside information on the facebookpage: Sergio Herman, FUCKING PERFECT and you can take a sneak peak on some recently released footage on vimeo.
