DETAILED STORYLINE

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - This is a feel-good drama with some lighter elements based on the best-selling novel. The target audience is older adults, but it should have a lot of appeal to younger ones as well. There are some adult themes, but otherwise this is safe viewing for most families with children, but their interest level is another question.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good There's something gentle, charming, and old-fashioned about The Hundred-Foot Journey, a family-friendly motion picture...

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average But despite being handsomely crafted, well acted and even sufficiently enjoyable, 'The Hundred-Foot Journey' is also conventional and predictable.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average The Hundred-Foot Journey is a feel-good movie that takes place in what just might be the most picturesque village in all of France.

NY Post Full Review
Good 'The Hundred Foot Journey' is a midsummer treat

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 97 moviegoers:
GREAT REVIEWS! All ages, both males and females, LOVED "THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY." Only about 8% of the males and 2% of the females rated it as low as "Good/Average."


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is a culinary ingenue 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, 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 winner Helen Mirren), gets wind of it.

Her icy protests against the new Indian restaurant a hundred feet from her own escalate into a heated battle between the two establishments until Hassan's passion for French haute cuisine - and for Madame 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 Madame Mallory cannot ignore. Madame Mallory eventually recognizes her culinary rival's gift as a chef and takes Hassan under her wing.
