Storyline

The family of talented cook, Hassan Kadam, 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, in the village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val inspires Papa Kadam 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 herself, both professional and personal, that encourages an understanding that will change both sides forever.

Trivia

The two restaurants facing each other were digitally created. The Maison Mumbai actually faced a large field. The producers paved a 75 m stretch of road and built a building facade on the opposite side with a blue screen on the top. See more »

Quotes

Papa: She thinks she owns everybody in town. Do you hear me up there? I say no! Don't try to steal my children!
Madame Mallory: I will report you, Mr. Kadam, for making too much noise.
Papa: And I will report you for attempted child abduction!
Madame Mallory: Have you even asked the boy what he wants?
Papa: You deliberately seduced him!
Madame Mallory: [Scoffs]
Papa: You seduced his mind,with your awful, tasteless, empty sauces! With your pitiful little squashed bits of garlic!
Madame Mallory: That is called subtlety of flavor.
Papa: It's called meanness of spirit! If you have a spice, ...

the 100 foot journey
9 August 2014 | by robertverregeSee all my reviews

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 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.
