Cook up a feast to celebrate the release of The 100ft Journey

Posted: 28.08.14

Tantalise your tastebuds with a film that celebrates fine food, family and friendship. The Hundred-Foot Journey is a big screen adaptation of Richard C Morais' international best-selling novel about an Indian family who move to rural France and open a restaurant. The cast is led by two of the most prolific actors of our generation - Oscar-winning Helen Mirren and Indian legend Om Puri. An uplifting and feel-good cultural feast full of Indian spices, French sophistication and British wit, it's a family film that everyone will enjoy though they'll also feel extremely hungry afterwards - there is a lot of food in this flick and it all looks delicious! 

In the film, Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. When Hassan and his family, led by Papa (Om Puri), move to a quaint village in the South of France with the grand plan of opening an Indian restaurant in the picturesque countryside, they are undeterred by the fact that only 100 feet opposite stands a Michelin starred classical French eatery.

However upon encountering the icy proprietress, Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren), the Kadam family realise they may have bitten off more than they can chew. Outraged by the new arrivals, Madame Mallory is determined to have their business shut down. As cultures clash and food flies, a heated battle escalates between the two establishments – until, that is, Hassan’s passion and talent for French cuisine begin to enchant Madame Mallory and even she can’t deny this young chef could have what it takes to garner even more acclaim for her beloved restaurant.

This, along with his new-found friendship with her beautiful sous chef Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon), starts to weave a magic between the two cultures and, despite their different tastes, they discover an unlikely recipe for success that surprises them all.
