“Coração na Boca” now streaming
“Ljubomir Stanišić – Coração na Boca” is the name of the biographical documentary filmed for a decade by the former journalist and director of communication and image for the 100 Maneiras group and the chef, Mónica Franco (who is also Ljubomir’s wife).
In a miniseries format, composed of four episodes, the documentary has been available since January 26th on OPTO, SIC’s streaming platform.
For about one hour and a half, it is possible to follow the chef in the kitchen – in Bistro 100 Maneiras and Six Senses Douro Valley (where he was a consultant between 2016 and 2019) – but also outside, demonstrating another side of Ljubo: fishing, hunting, moments with family and friends, an emotional journey back to Sarajevo, the hometown from which he fled as a teenager, during the war, or the hunger strike at the end of 2020. A journey with good and bad times which ends with the achievement of the first Michelin star, in Restaurant 100 Maneiras.
With an original idea, direction and production by Mónica Franco, the documentary does not fail to include friends in the credits, as is usual in the group. The Legendary Tigerman and Rodrigo Leão sign the soundtrack, while the graphics were handled by Mário Belém, the illustrator responsible for many of Bistro’s artworks – such as the illustrations in the lower room or Hendrick’s Room.
After the premiere at OPTO, the aim will be to take the documentary to the cinemas as soon as possible.
