Critic Reviews for The Hundred-Foot Journey
If the movie is high on gastronomy, it also redefines cooking with gas.
Linus Sandgren's camera caresses the cuisine like an ecstatic lover. It brought out the foodie in me.
Mirren's Madame Mallory unctuously oozes her dedication to perfection from every pore -- and it's truly delicious to watch her work her magic up on the screen.
Hallström, who also directed Chocolat, follows the foodie-cinema aesthetic by filming the dishes in a gleaming sumptuousness designed to make you famished.
Audience Reviews for The Hundred-Foot Journey
I enjoyed this film about a competition between an expensive French restaurant and a bargain-brand Indian restaurant - 100 feet from each other.
Got to admit, got roped into this one. Wasn't one I would have chosen to watch. It is a good movie. The story about the Indian family moving to France and starting up a restaurant is good. Helen Mirren plays a horrible woman who works in a competing restaurant... But she comes nice by the end. There's also a bit of romance thrown in and some beautiful shots of the country, and of course, food. It did feel like an older persons movie, however. (And now I technically am an older person, it even seems too much that way for me). It's a nice movie, is what I mean. There is nothing in there that would offend or displease anyone, and thinking is optional too, although it does have its dramatic moments and a bit of tragedy too.
Not too spicy. Not too bland. Somewhat charming, but nothing special.
