My family and I really enjoyed watching the entertaining story of "The Hundred-Foot Journey," when it came out. We are glad that we can own a copy on Blu-ray™ and Digital HD, as it becomes available on December 2nd. This story based on the beloved, best-selling novel by Richard C. Morais is a flavorful tale of cultural differences, shared passions, and the unifying nature of food. It is the perfect gift for movie fans of all ages this holiday season.
The movie is about Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) 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, and 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 (Helen Mirren), gets wind of it. Her icy protests against the new Indian restaurant a hundred feet from her own escalate to all out war between the two establishments, until Hassan’s passion for French haute cuisine and for Mme. 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 Mme. Mallory cannot ignore. At first Mme. Mallory's culinary rival, she eventually recognizes Hassan's gift as a chef and takes him under her wing.
This movie written by Steven Knight is produced by Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey and Juliet Blake. It is directed by Lasse Hallström. The music is composed by A.R. Rahman, and some of the actors include Helen Mirren, Om Puri, Manish Dayal, Charlotte Le Bon and Farzana Dua Elahe.
You can tune in at 6pm PST/9pm EST TONIGHT for a LIVE Facebook Q and A with Manish Dayal, who plays Hassan Kadam in the film.
