Summary

LE CIRQUE: A TABLE IN HEAVEN is an intimate portrait of Le Cirque founder Sirio Maccioni and his three sons (Mauro, Marco and Mario) to whom he will one day leave his formidable cultural and culinary legacy. Director Andrew Rossi not only gains unbelievable access to the larger-than-life Maccioni family but also catches the family at a dramatic transition: the closing of Le Cirque in 2004, its celebrated re-opening two years later followed by the nerve-wracking wait for New York’s restaurant critics to weigh in on their new incarnation. Not only is LE CIRQUE: A TABLE IN HEAVEN a must-see for anyone who is passionate about food and dining, but it shows us a family embroiled in the age-old struggle between fathers, sons, tradition and change - which, for the family behind Le Cirque, means the fate of one of New York’s most treasured institutions hangs in the balance. LE CIRQUE: A TABLE IN HEAVEN is a fascinating portrait of a family business caught in the world’s spotlight.
