The Hundred-Foot Journey

I know it is a-week time after watching this movie.
Sorry that I am writing the review now only.
Thanks Churp Churp for the exclusive passes of The Hunred-foot Journey.

In “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. Displaced from their native India, the Kadam family, led by Papa (Om Puri), settles in the quaint village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val in the south of France. Filled with charm, it is both picturesque and elegant – the ideal place to settle down and open an Indian restaurant, the Maison Mumbai. That is, until the chilly chef proprietress of Le Saule Pleureur, a Michelin starred, classical French restaurant run by Madame Mallory (Academy Award (R)-winner Helen Mirren), gets wind of it. Her icy protests against the new Indian restaurant a hundred feet from her own, escalate to all out war between the two establishments – until Hassan’s passion for French haute cuisine and for Mme. Mallory’s enchanting sous chef, Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon), combine with his mysteriously delicious talent to weave magic between their two cultures and imbue Saint-Antonin with the flavors of life that even Mme. Mallory cannot ignore. At first Mme. Mallory’s culinary rival, she eventually recognizes Hassan’s gift as a chef and takes him under her wing. 

What is your opinion on French cuisine with the ornament of Indian spices?
This film will give you an answer.
No doubt you will see food”s” in the entire movie.
And also new inspiration on food and innovation.
Other than the food part, the chemistry between Om Puri and Helen Mirren let this film even interesting.
Their interaction in the movie always brings a lot of laughs to audiences.
However, I think the movie will be greater if it can include the translation of French and Hindi spoken by both parties.
Some sentences they spoke were in French and Hindi.
For the audiences who don’t speak in these languages may not fully understand the plot.

Overall, The 100-Foot Journey is an interesting movie.
If you love food and comedy, it is a movie for you.
When watching the trailer, it gave Danny a feeling of love story,
and he was somewhat reluctant to watch it.
But, he came out the theater with his big thumb up.
So, this means this is not only girl-favorite, it suits guys too.

Rating: 4/5
