Film & Video Festival Spring 2015- “The Hundred Foot Journey”

“The Hundred Foot Journey”
(USA, 2014, 122 min., color, DVD, Subtitled, PG)
Starring Helen Mirren and Om Puri

The family of a talented cook, Hassan Kadam, has a life filled with both culinary delights and profound loss. Drifting through Europe after fleeing political violence in India that killed the family restaurant business and their mother, the Kadams arrive in a village in France. Once there, an auto accident and the kindness of a young woman, Marguerite, inspires Papa Kadam to set up an Indian restaurant there. Unfortunately, this puts the Kadams in direct competition with the snobbish Madame Mallory’s acclaimed haute cuisine establishment across the street where Marguerite also works as a sous-chef. The resulting rivalry eventually escalates in personal intensity until it goes too far. In response, there is a bridging of sides initiated by Hassan, Marguerite and Madame Mallory herself, both professional and personal, that encourages an understanding that will change both sides forever.-

“Director Lasse Hallstrom started out with dessert 14 years ago and has now gone on to the main course in his delectable new romantic comedy about food wars”. -Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope, 9/7/2014
