The Hundred Foot Journey
This is a story that begins with terrible loss, yet out of this tragedy great success is found. This Indian family move from Mumbai to England (at first) then finally settle in France after a fateful mishap. Brakes always brake for a reason you know. This drastic move provides young chef Hassan Kadam with an opportunity of a lifetime after his father purchases a restaurant just across the street from an already decorated Michelin star restaurant.
Hassan is a wide eyed talent in the kitchen. His ability to create and innovate in the kitchen while maintaining the foundations of standard dishes brings high praise to him and his family’s restaurant. With every dish cooked, served and eaten, my mouth begins to water. It’s such a light-hearted film you can’t help but enjoy it. From delicious entrees to the father’s loving banter to the start of new love between two chefs, this movie captures it all.
If you want that movie you can just sit back, relax and enjoy, The Hundred Foot Journey delivers. It will put a smile on your face throughout and, as any good movie, will leave you smiling (and maybe even looking up cooking schools).
GMBM Verdict : Food is the way to our heart and so is this film. Good Movie.
