The Hundred-Foot Journey 

Relationships and competing cuisines find resolution in this feel-good, if predictable, comedy

click to enlarge Hundred-Foot Journey film

An Indian family moves to a small French town and opens a restaurant across the road from a fine-dining joint run by the imperious Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren). Will Madame melt for budding chef Hassan's (Manish Dayal) sublime curries? He's already won the tastebuds of charmant sous chef Magritte (Charlotte Le Bon). Can lonely widower Papa (Om Puri) find romance in France? Will Michelin stars fall on everyone? There's little a viewer won't see coming in Lasse Hallstrom's overly long ensemble foodie-rom-com. But like ordering your favorite dish time and again, this lightweight conoction will satisfy those looking for an easy-breezy, feel-good summer film.
