I have watched everything about Julia Child - the movie, the HBO series, and now this excellent documentary. I grew up with her on television, my mother bought first editions of her book, I made her dishes for the French Club in high school in 1976, and have given her cookbook as a housewarming or wedding gift to numerous friends. The more I learn about her, the more I adore her love for others; her strong sense of herself without being an egomaniac; the way she didn't take herself too seriously was expressed by her sparkling sense of humor, but she also didn't allow others to intimidate her. She knew that bringing French cuisine into American kitchens, she was an ambassador of joy to our country; she helped us to develop an open heart and pleasure for eating - and made it fun. One of the things I admire about this documentary is how Julia says over and over again that you don't have to be perfect; you'll make mistakes; it's no fun being uptight; and yet she put so much time and attention into getting it right for us, so we could be transported by food. Her compassion, love, and kindness for others, and her complete love for her partner Paul were constant. She was devoted to all that mattered to her. Viva La Julia!
