Set in the beautiful Southern France countryside, this sumptuous story features outstanding performances from; Golden Globe® nominee HELEN MIRREN (The Queen, Calendar Girls) as Madame Mallory, the owner of a Michelin starred French restaurant; OM PURI (Charlie Wilson’s War, East Is East) as Papa Kadam, who leads his family to the South of France; MANISH DAYAL (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, 90210) as Papa Kadam’s son, young Indian chef Hassan Kadam; and CHARLOTTE LE BON (Yves Saint Laurent, Mood Indigo) as Madame Mallory’s French sous chef, Marguerite.
Hassan Kadam (Dayal) is a culinary prodigy who travels with his family to the South of France after being displaced from their native India. It’s the ideal place to settle down and open an Indian restaurant, that is until Madame Mallory (Mirren), the icy proprietress of a Michelin starred French restaurant gets wind of it. Her protests against the ‘Maison Mumbai’ located a hundred feet from her own escalate to all out war between the two establishments – until Hassan’s passion for French cuisine and for a beautiful sous chef, Marguerite (Le Bon), combine with his mouth-watering talent to weave culinary magic between their two cultures.
The Hundred-Foot Journey is available on Blu-ray and DVD on 9th March, courtesy of Entertainment One.
