Starring Academy Award(R) winner Helen Mirren (Best Actress, THE QUEEN, 2006), produced by Steven Speilberg, Oprah Winfrey and Juliet Blake, and directed by Lasse Hallstr-m (CHOCOLAT), this uplifting story bursts with flavor, passion and heart. When the chilly chef proprietress of a Michelin-starred French restaurant in southern France (Mirren) gets wind of a culinary immigrant opening an Indian restaurant just 100 feet from her own, her icy protests escalate to all-out war between the two establishments. It's a celebration of triumph over exile as these two worlds collide and one young man tries to find the comfort of home in every pot -- wherever he may be.

The Hundred-Foot Journey arrives on blu-ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 2.39:1 encode. This movie was shot on 35 mm film, which gives the image a natural and filmic look. The colour palette was saturated with the colourful Indian spices and the lush country-fresh vegetables on display at the market. Contrasts are nicely balanced. The detail is fairly vivid and sharp, particularly in the close ups, which reveal individual hairs, wrinkles, and makeup work. Overall, this is such a natural and beautiful visual experience. (4.5/5)
The DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio soundtrack is quite enveloping, with a sweeping orchestral music score around the entire room. Special mention must be to A.R. Rahman’s score, which is brilliant. I was very impressed with his previous work on Slumdog Millionaire. Still remember that pop (also line dance) song Jai Ho? Dialogue is clear. This is another enjoyable soundtrack. (4.5/5)
The title Hundred Foot depicts the distance between the two restaurants, the Michelin starred restaurant 'Le Saule Pleureur' (The Weeping Willow) run by Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren) and the Maison Mumbai on the other side. This is a nice little film, with no dinosaurs or CGI effects, depicting heartfelt drama between family members and their romances with new people, mixed with some comedy. You really grow a fondness for these characters, and allows you to easily relate to their successes and failures. A nice little movie.Read more ›
It reminds me of another similar movie, 'Todays Special'.
I was surprised to see that Steven Spielberg was one of the producers.
It's a very 'feel-good' movie - so if that's your taste then this is the movie.
Helen Mirren gave us another great performance. The film was more about Hassan (Manish Dayal) being a cook than the rivalry which was relatively short lived.
