About the Movie
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®-‐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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Linus Sandgren's camera caresses the cuisine like an ecstatic lover. It brought out the foodie in me.
Fresh: Mirren's Madame Mallory unctuously oozes her dedication to perfection from every pore -- and it's truly delicious to watch her work her magic up on the screen.
Fresh: At its core, The Hundred-Foot Journey is a movie about good food, and one man's passion for cooking.
Rotten: The Hundred-Foot Journey is a culinary culture-clash comedy enlivened by fiery performances from Helen Mirren and Om Puri but which, like so many other Lasse Hallstrom films, slowly turns to gloop the longer it lasts.
A wonderful experience, I smiled all the way though it!
The story is PERFECT and the movie flows very well. I loved it so much I went and saw it again just the next day!
This is a heart warming film. It is beautifully executed. Mirren, as always, is brilliant. If you are looking for a film that exalts affection and creativity, this is it.
