Check out the trailer for Oprah Winfrey Produced ‘The Hundred-Foot Journey‘. Starring Academy award winning actress Helen Mirren, the film is about the all-out war between the two established restaurants in the South of France. It begins when Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. Displaced from their native India, he settles in the village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val located in the South of France. To him it is elegant and ideal place to settle down and open an Indian restaurant called The Maison Mumbai.
That is, until the chilly chef proprietress of Le Saule Pleureur, a classical French restaurant run by Madame Mallory gets wind of it. Her protests against the new Indian restaurant a hundred feet from her own, escalate to all out war between the two establishments. Hassan’s passion for French cuisine and his mysteriously delicious talent to weave magic between their two cultures and the flavors of life that even Madame Mallory cannot ignore. She eventually recognizes Hassan’s gift as a chef and takes him under her wing. The film also stars big names like Om Puri and Charlotte Le Bon.
