The Hundred-Foot Journey

The Hundred-Foot Journey

The release of The Hundred-Foot Journey is now just over a week away and sees Helen Mirren back on the big screen.

The Hundred-Foot Journey is an adaptation of the book by Richard C. Morais, and will see Mirren team up with filmmaker Lasse Hallström.

Hallström is no stranger to the adaptation with the likes of Salmon Fishing in the Yemen and Dear John under his belt, but this is his first film since Safe Haven last year.

Mirren takes on the central character of Madame Mallory and you can see her in action in this new clip... and she is not happy!!

I love seeing Mirren on the big screen and she continues to mix her roles - this is her first film since she kicked some ass in Red 2 last summer.

She is joined on the cast list by Om Puri, Manish Dayal, Charlotte Le Bon and Amit Shah.

Mirren takes on the central role of Madame Mallory - proprietress of a celebrated French restaurant - and is joined on the cast list by Om Puri, Manish Dayal, and Charlotte Le Bon in what looks set to be a delightful watch.

Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. When Hassan and his family, led by Papa (Om Puri), 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 (Helen Mirren), 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 (Charlotte Le Bon), 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.

The Hundred-Foot Journey is released 5th September.
