In “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is a culinary ingenious. 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, Maison Mumbai.  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 into a heated battle between the two establishments until Hassan’s passion for French haute cuisine — and for Madame Mallory’s enchanting sous chef, Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon).


The Hundred Foot Journey


Combine with Hassan’s mysteriously-delicious talent to weave magic between the two cultures and imbue Saint-Antonin with the flavors of life that even Madame Mallory cannot ignore. At first Madame Mallory’s culinary rival, she eventually recognizes Hassan’s gift as a chef and takes him under her wing.

 I admit I went in to see this movie with very low expectations. I was completely wrong! It was definitely one of the best movies I have seen yet this year. The Hundred Foot Journey had a little bit of everything from humor to the emotional aspect which brought me to tears. What a wonderful movie to bring two cultures together. The world is full of division and this movie proves that people can work together.  Also some can be struggling through difficult times but we can triumph over those times just like the Kadam family did. 



 The Hundred-Foot Journey” will be released in theaters Friday, August 8, 2014. I am hoping there will be a sequel to this movie,  I just did not get enough of it. I was sad when it ended because it was so good! Definitely a summer movie must see!
