The Hundred-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.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"If the movie is high on gastronomy, it also redefines cooking with gas."
‑ Wesley Morris, Grantland
"Hallström, who also directed Chocolat, follows the foodie-cinema aesthetic by filming the dishes in a gleaming sumptuousness designed to make you famished."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"... dishes out a mostly flavorful blend of comedy and drama, with a dash of poignancy, which helps to overcome its blander ingredients."
‑ Todd Jorgenson,
"Director Lasse Hallström started out with dessert 14 years ago and has now gone on to the main course in this delectable new romantic comedy about food wars."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"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 Hallström films, slowly turns to gloop the longer it lasts."
‑ Geoffrey Macnab, Independent
"Linus Sandgren's camera caresses the cuisine like an ecstatic lover. It brought out the foodie in me."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Food porn with a sweet albeit predictable menu."
‑ Richard Roeper, Richard
"Doesn't show enough vitality, in spite of a good cast"
‑ Robert Denerstein, Movie Habit
"Puri is great fun as the indomitable head of the family, and Mirren convinces as the grand dame, despite dishing out her lines in an accent that staunchly refuses to set."
‑ Mark Kermode, Observer [UK]
"Clearly aimed at the grey euro market, at least The Hundred-Foot Journey knows what it's about and goes about its business with honest efficiency."
‑ George Byrne, Irish Independent
"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."
‑ Bill Zwecker, Chicago Sun-Times
"At its core, The Hundred-Foot Journey is a movie about good food, and one man's passion for cooking."
‑ Sean Tepper, Globe and Mail
"Familiar yet diverting"
‑ Richard Knight, Windy City Times
"Swedish director Lasse Hallström serves up the cinematic equivalent of comfort food, but if that is your fare of choice then this culinary culture-clash comedy will go down a treat."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"There is a good-bad film lurking within this grey-pound comedy from arch-sentimentalist Lasse Hallström."
‑ Donald Clarke, Irish Times
