Dreamworks has released a clip for next Friday’s release of the film, The Hundred Foot Journey. The film is directed byÂ Lasse HallstrÃ¶m and starsÂ Helen Mirren, Om Puri, Manish Dayal, Charlotte Le Bon.
In â€œThe Hundred-Foot Journey,â€ Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is a culinary ingÃ©nue 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 â€“ 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 AwardÂ®-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 Hassanâ€™s passion for French haute cuisine â€” and for Madame Malloryâ€™s enchanting sous chef, Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon) â€” 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. At first Madame Mallory’s culinary rival, she eventually recognizes Hassan’s gift as a chef and takes him under her wing.
â€œThe Hundred-Foot Journeyâ€ abounds with flavors that burst across the tongue. A stimulating triumph over exile, blossoming with passion and heart, it is a portrayal of two worlds colliding and one young manâ€™s drive to find the comfort of home, in every pot, wherever he may be.
