Table Times

by Syd Briscoe

Dr Oetker: “A Few Square Metres” - 60s

This cheerful film for Dr Oetker pays tribute to those who've made the best of quarantine, even during tough times. From parents juggling working from home with becoming their kids' teacher to the children themselves trying to handle living through a pandemic with any sense of normality, things haven't been easy.

It's a canny move to centre the film around the kitchen table, where meals, lessons, arguments, and celebrations each have their turn in the spotlight. The eclectic families shown each have their own unique trials to overcome, but coming together through food is a universal leveller. This is the sort of pick-me-up viewers will appreciate right now.
