As you might imagine, visually, it's a stunning film, and the story is endearing. Dayal and Le Bon are charming, and Helen Mirren, well, is Helen Mirren.

If you can deal with the uneven narrative - and in this case there's no reason you shouldn't - there is a lot to like about this film.

It may play out predictably, and feature more fake fireworks than it should, but The Hundred-Foot Journey is charming, with enough heart and genuine laughs to forgive its formulaic nature.

How wrong can you go shooting in the south of France? Or shooting Helen Mirren? Not with a gun. She can turn 103 and she'll still be alluring, even when she's being haughty.

Everything that happens does so purposefully to get to the next checkpoint, but in a naturalistic way thanks to the humor and performances.

Puri is great fun as the indomitable head of the family, and Mirren convinces as the grand dame, despite dishing out her lines in an accent that staunchly refuses to set.

Swedish director Lasse Hallström serves up the cinematic equivalent of comfort food, but if that is your fare of choice then this culinary culture-clash comedy will go down a treat.

Clearly aimed at the grey euro market, at least The Hundred-Foot Journey knows what it's about and goes about its business with honest efficiency.

There is a good-bad film lurking within this grey-pound comedy from arch-sentimentalist Lasse Hallström.

If The Hundred-Foot Journey ultimately proves no spicier than chicken tikka masala for the soul, that's Chef Lasse for you. At his comforting best - and this is close to it - nobody does it milder.
