    Film Review: The Hundred-Foot Journey

    The Kadam family relocate their Indian restaurant run by son and hotshot chef Hassan, from Mumbai, India to Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val in the south of France; just a hundred-feet away from the local competition, Michelin star restaurant ‘Le Saule Pleureur'. Culinary warfare ensues. A rom-com for foodies directed by Lasse Hallström (Chocolat) with scenes that could be taken from a painting by Renoir. Slow-paced, predictable and cheesy. But salvaged by some charming qualities to boot: the winning combination of screen legends Helen Mirren and Om Puri, a stunning setting in scenic south of France, and a few subtle moments of truth. And keep an eye out for the gourmand Mayor played by Michel Blanc. Perfect for inflight viewing.
