The Hundred Foot Journey

The Hundred Foot Journey

In "The Hundred-Foot Journey," Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. Displaced from their native India, the Kadam family, led by Papa (Om Puri), settles in the quaint village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val in the south of France. Filled with charm, it is both picturesque and elegant - the ideal place to settle down and open an Indian restaurant, the Maison Mumbai. That is, until the chilly chef proprietress of Le Saule Pleureur, a Michelin starred, classical French restaurant run by Madame Mallory (Academy Award (R)-winner Helen Mirren), gets wind of it. Her icy protests against the new Indian restaurant a hundred feet from her own, escalate to all out war between the two establishments - until Hassan's passion for French haute cuisine and for Mme. Mallory's enchanting sous chef, Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon), combine with his mysteriously delicious talent to weave magic between their two cultures and imbue Saint-Antonin with the flavors of life that even Mme. Mallory cannot ignore. At first Mme. Mallory's culinary rival, she eventually recognizes Hassan's gift as a chef and takes him under her wing. (c) Disney

      Hi Lee, I can't do a matinee during the week and have plans during the day on the weekend. Would love to see this - how about a meetup on Friday evening 6:45 pm at the Orinda theater. Meet at 6:15 in front of the theater and have desert afterward to discuss the movie. Lana can you post?

    I loved the movie. It was nice to be in the Orinda Theater. It is a wonderful piece of Orinda history. Always nice to share thoughts with everyone after the movie.

    Really great movie with a well rounded cast of characters. The movie really highlights the meaning of "family", the value of fame, and the notion of "home".

    Great movie! Loved all the characters and the story. Great discussions after the movie! We were all starving after this movie and would have loved to have gone to either restaurant from the movie! :-)

    With Helen Mirren, Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg and the director of "Chocolat" involved how could it not be good?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
