The Hundred-Foot Journey

I' ve seen several trailers for this and it looks to be a lovely film. The description on Rotten Tomatoes from the ? producers also sounds lovely.

Has anyone first hand knowledge of this one?

  1. Looks nice. Only gets released nationwide Aug 8. Thanks for posting about it. I'll keep an eye out.

    1. No first hand knowledge but I did just finish the book which was a fun read. From the looks of the trailer, more romance in the movie. The relationship between the woman chef and father is not flirtatious at all in the book. Also, about 25 to 30% of the book takes place in Paris after the chef and father are dead and gone.

      I am eager to see the movie, it looks beautiful and mouthwatering for many reasons.

        I'm reading the book now and it is fun. I have a paperback copy with a discussion with the author at the back. It is interesting that he conceived this book as something to be made into a screenplay by his friend Ismail Merchant (who died before that could happen). Agree that the trailers at least seem to focus on what is a fairly minor part of this "autobiography".

          Comes out THURS here. I plan to see it FRI afternoon.

      2. Mr. P. is Indian, and we've traveled there often. I love Indian food--both cooking it and eating it.

        I'll go see the movie, but since he doesn't like movies, I'll go alone! (Plus, I'm a Helen Mirren fan. I just hope the movie isn't too Oprahfied.) Maybe it'll inspire me to make him some rasgullas...

          1. Here's a link to the previous discussion of this film:
