Storyline

The family of talented cook, Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal), has a life filled with both culinary delights and profound loss. Drifting through Europe after fleeing political violence in India that killed the family restaurant business and their mother, the Kadams arrive in France. Once there, a chance auto accident and the kindness of a young woman, Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon), in the village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val inspires Papa Kadam (Om Puri) to set up a Indian restaurant there. Unfortunately, this puts the Kadams in direct competition with the snobbish Madame Mallory's acclaimed haute cuisine establishment across the street where Marguerite also works as a sous-chef. The resulting rivalry eventually escalates in personal intensity until it goes too far. In response, there is a bridging of sides initiated by Hassan, Marguerite, and Madame Mallory (Dame Helen Mirren), both professional and personal, that encourages an understanding that will change both sides forever.

Madame Mallory: Do any of you know the words to the Marseillaise? Jean-Pierre?
Jean-Pierre: Of course. It's our national anthem.
Madame Mallory: Do you know all the words? "Ils viennent jusque dans vos bras. Égorger vos fils, vos compagnes!" "They come to slit the throats of our sons, our wives". Alors continuer Jean-Pierre.
Jean-Pierre: "Aux armes citoyens, formez vos bataillons, marchons".

lovely
8 January 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

I do know the adapted book. But the film is obvious a delight. Sure, the temptation of critic is not small but the basic virtue of film is to be lovely. Not convincing, not complex. Just lovely. And it has few atu who are more than significant, from the performances to the flavors escaping from screen. It has, in same measure , a seductive "spice" - the meet between Hellen Mirren and Om Puri. Short, it represents a real delight. The photography is one of proofs.
