A story of two loves

A story of two loves - The Hundred Foot JourneyA wonderfully sweet film of two loves that combines two different cultures in a small French town.

One one side of the street there is a Michelin starred restaurant and 100 feet away is a new, upstart, Indian restaurant.

What could go wrong when the cultures collide? From fighting over food to fighting over love.

What can an English India chef bring to a classic French restaurant. Will the mix of cultures work or end in disaster? Who will win the battle of the restaurants or will it all end in tears for everyone involved?

A sweet mix of when cultures clash. With two of the greatest actors who could be put together. From India we have Om Puri and on the other side of the road, Helen Mirren.

What could the two culinary traditions do to each other. Will it all work out in the end or will one, untimatly fail because of love?

From the director who gave us Chocolat and produced by one of the greatest living directors and the queen of talk. Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey.

Hassan Kadam is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. When Hassan and his family, led by Papa, move to a quaint village in the South of France with the grand plan of opening an Indian restaurant in the picturesque countryside, they are undeterred by the fact that only 100 feet opposite stands a Michelin starred classical French eatery.

However upon encountering the icy proprietress, Madame Mallory, the Kadam family realise they may have bitten off more than they can chew. Outraged by the new arrivals, Madame Mallory is determined to have their business shut down. As cultures clash and food flies, an all-out war escalates between the two establishments – until, that is, Hassan’s passion and talent for French cuisine begin to enchant Madame Mallory and even she can’t deny this young chef could have what it takes to garner even more acclaim for her beloved restaurant.

This, along with his new-found friendship with her beautiful sous chef Marguerite starts to weave a magic between the two cultures and, despite their different tastes, they discover an unlikely recipe for success that surprises them all.
