The Hundred-Foot Journey opens in theaters August 8th, 2014.

Cast: Helen Mirren, Manish Dayal, Om Puri, Charlotte Le Bon

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 an all out
war between the two establishments — until Hassan’s passion for French haute cuisine and for Madame
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 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.

“The Hundred-Foot Journey” abounds with flavors that burst across the tongue. A stimulating triumph
over exile, blossoming with passion and heart, with marjoram and madras, it is a portrayal of two worlds
colliding and one boy’s drive to find the comfort of home, in every pot, wherever he may be.

  1. Another example of a movie in which exoticized, non-white characters strive to be validated by the dominant white culture by redefining themselves in terms of the white culture.  
    Despite shaking off European colonization, many non-white and formerly-colonized societies still gauge their success by how European/"American"/White they are.
    Though I am happy to see Indian actors on screen, I am troubled that the story line reflects the commonly held myth that European society is the paragon to which all others must strive to be like.
