Among the most refreshing movie of recent times (by dnbonthenet)
When I first noticed the ratings on IMDb, my expectations before watching the movie were substantially toned down. I went to the movie with a rather unassuming frame of mind, hoping something good would come out of from the two hours I planned to spend. But, I must say that ratings do not hand down the justice the movie deserves. The story is set in south France, and narrates a clash of two beautiful cultures via its respective culinary grandeur. Further embellished into the story line are two very beautiful actors. Overall, the movie leaves a very refreshing taste in the end. The entire <more>
movie has a very subtle and harmonious tone, with no significant ups or downs, clash or surprises. Its a very easy to watch, light movie that can be enjoyed with the entire family. I feel this movie presents an excellent characterization of the type of globalization our society has come to bear. Unfortunately, as embodied by the reviews and ratings, it appears the western audience is not yet ready to embrace a non-western, non-Caucasian actors. I hope this changes soon.
Helen Mirren and Om Puri, Manish Dayal, worked so well on the screen together . It was a treat to watch and with all the big name movies out the same week it was definitely a treasure . The casting and the writing and directing was perfect . It was well worth the ticket watching it in the show . If you make it out to the theater in the next few weeks here is one treat I can promise you wont be disappointed in . The storyline works along with the cast making it come to life . It has all you need to feel good , comedy, drama , and a good ending . So if you are looking for something this weekend <more>
The famous director, Lasse Hallstrom has done it again,creating this masterpiece. A delight that will please all the senses with a backdrop of Southern France thrown in for eye candy. Talented, respected, British star Mirren is at her best showing her uncanny ability in artfully playing a French woman with impeccable taste, in this funny but moving romance of haute-cuisine. The ensemble Bollywood cast with star Om Puri and fresh new faces of handsome Manish Dayal and beautiful Canadian Charlotte La Bon are added to this charming film based on love, food, marketing, cultural differences and <more>
acceptance. Mirren shows us she is a worthy match with American Merle Streep in their quest for challenging roles. With Spielberg and Winfrey behind this project is it any wonder it could be anything less than a success? Surely one of 2014's "must see" films.
I can't believe no has has reviewed this already. I just saw it, and had a great time.There's really nothing not to like. It's a standard story of a clash between two cultures, French and Indian cooking in this case, but rather than just playing it out as that, we see the young Indian chef take an interest in French haute cuisine and experiment with how he can mix one with the other. The head of the haute gamme traditional French restaurant located in the same small French town, played by Helen Mirren, doesn't just fall in love with Indian cooking, as you would expect to <more>
happen on a made-for-TV movie about this topic. She grows to appreciate what Indian cuisine can add to classical French cuisine.She also has certain important French Republican values that make her a more interesting character. She does not hesitate to try to ruin the opening of the rival, Indian restaurant. But when that restaurant is attacked by racists with cries of "France for the French," part of the current Nationalist discourse, she fires the person she believes to have been involved in it and publicly washes away the Nationalist graffiti sprayed at the entrance to the Indian restaurant. This is one of the many important scenes that are new with the movie and have no equivalent of the novel. The characters are not caricatures, in other words.There are times when the movie reminded me of Ratatouille - the in-kitchen rivalry between sous-chefs, for example. Almost the entire subplot dealing with Hassan and Marguerite is also new with the movie and not in the novel. The novel does mention, largely in passing, that Hassan becomes romantically involved with the sous-chef, Marguerite. But she is never developed as a character in the novel, does not play any significant role in Hassan's development as a chef - it is Mme. Mallory who gives Hassan the cook book, not Marguerite - etc. There were times when you could see the next step too far in advance. It's not a perfect movie.There were also things implied in the movie that never got developed. Mirren's upscale French restaurant is in a typical 19th-century bourgeois villa. The Indians establish their restaurant in what is as clearly a southern French farm building, yet nothing is done with the contrast between bourgeois cooking that has become detached from the basic country cooking that would have taken place in that farmhouse and that has always been at the basis of the greatest French haute cuisine. That's a theme developed nicely in Ratatouille, with the explanation of the title dish. The novel touches on that theme from time to time, but never does anything with it either, and in fact seems to forget about it for long stretches. It's not a well-constructed novel. The movie script is much better, frankly.That the movie does not develop this theme is particularly surprising because the very clear architectural contrast between the two restaurants is also new with the movie. In the novel, the Indian family opens their restaurant in another 19th century bourgeois house, described repeatedly as a "mansion," very similar to the one occupied by the two-Michelin-star traditional French restaurant. They are located across from each other, as in the movie, but in the middle of town, not out in the country. If the director - or whoever - of the movie decided to shift the locale so that he could put the Indians and their restaurant in what is very clearly an old farm house, why was this symbolism not developed?There are, in fact, many very significant changes from the novel, interesting ones. Among other Academy Awards for which this movie should at least be nominated is Best Adaptation of Previously-existing material, or whatever that award is called. The script of this movie is very intelligent, but also very different from the section of the novel from which it was derived.All the acting is good to first class.It's a feel-good movie, yes, but a well-made one. Better, for example, than "Chef", which deals with some of the same issues, but not as well.Go see it. But be prepared to leave hungry ;
Hollywood - Bollywood Fusion Cooked to Perfection (by nishp2004)
The movie is titled "A Hundred Foot Journey", and it's not just the protagonists in the movie who will embark on a journey, but so will you, the moviegoer. You will laugh, you will smile, you will wonder, and you will be immersed in the surroundings of a picturesque small town in the mountains of France where two beautiful and delicious! cultures clash, mingle, and eventually harmonize. In short, you will view a Hollywood – Bollywood fusion that is done so well that you will ask for more. The movie weaves in light-hearted humor throughout, yet honestly depicts the <more>
awkwardness and tension between the newly arrived Indian family and the local French townspeople. The struggles faced by the Indian diaspora, so prevalent in Bollywood today, is explored with sincerity and comedy. Helen Mirren was great, but for me the star was Om Puri, who pulled off the role of an immigrant father to perfection. Having grown up with an Indian father abroad, I know that the struggle of adjusting to a new country while holding dearly to your values and culture is not an easy one, and often results in a complicated mix of motives, values and ideals in those individuals. Yet Om Puri strikes a perfect note. His lines are probably the most memorable in the movie.To summarize, the movie is a must watch!
I wanted to eat on both sides of the street (by pefrss)
The only thing which bothered me a little bit about this movie was that the restaurant owner of a French restaurant somewhere in the countryside is played by an English actress. And I love Helen Mirren. There are some weird language situations which do not make sense. Otherwise I thoroughly enjoyed this little comedy about two of my favorite foods. I could not decide on which side of the street I wanted to eat.As a senior citizen myself I am always happy when a movie is carried by people my age. And boy do Helen Mirren and Om Puri carry this movie. If you want to spend pleasant two hours in <more>
the company of entertaining people and pictures of delicious food, you will have a good time seeing this movie.
This movie is filled with the joys and sorrows that accompany a full life. The acting is excellent. I could not fault a single actor. Even those delivering one liners seemed divested in the story. The photography and music are spectacular. A. R. Rahman showed even more depth and diversity than usual in his deep and varied score, and I kept wishing that I could freeze frame some of the amazing shots from the film so that I could take them home to use as inspiration for a painting. Plus, food has never looked more yummy! The story is touching and kept my interest from beginning to end. The <more>
messages contained within are subtle but definitely there, and they are positive and uplifting, which is a welcome change in today's challenging world. I fell in love with it all! Kudos! Kudos! Kudos to all!
This movie is well-constructed, beautifully filmed, and rich in diversity. The story is poignant and heartwarming. Its a wonderful movie especially if you enjoy cooking movies. The critic in our local newspaper gave the film two stars out of 5, saying it was slow and too schmaltzy. A bit schmaltzy maybe, but who doesn't like a good love story centered around food. The characters were perfect and seeing Charlotte Le Bon for the first time was breathtaking. Helen Mirren was her normal fabulous self. the Indian cast was excellent. Besides Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey do not invest or <more>
make 2 star movies. We plan to see this movie again since the writing was so good we may have missed something.
Simple, yet much better a tale than most films. (by sushant0406)
I had not planned to watch this movie. It was just out of pure boredom that I opened my local newspaper to check for the list of movie shows in the next hour and decided to go for it. There was a show of The Hundred- Foot Journey and am I glad that I went to watch it.The director was able to successfully depict the initial struggle of an Indian family, that has moved to France, after losing their matriarch to the fires of the local riots; their belligerent yet funny competition and subsequent truce with the owner of a local and famous restaurant right opposite theirs; and finally nurturing <more>
the talent of the Indian boy who had a gift of cooking by the very same French lady and his rise to stardom . The film also has a touching moment that all the people staying away from their loved ones must have felt in their lives. Actor Manish Dayal did a splendid role in that scene and gave a good performance,overall. The trio of Om Puri, Helen Mirren and Charlotte Le Bon did a splendid job and kept me laughing Puri and Mirren to be specific and intrigued the whole time. Not a moment of boredom. Charlote Le Bon is not only an ocean of talent, but, is insanely gorgeous. Looking forward to seeing her in more movies.
