A "Hundred-Foot Journey" off a short pier. That's what I though of this movie. shre there are good cooking, but ot's the dull avcting that left me with a bitter taste. It's a feel good movie about a family from India who came to France to bult their own restraunt across from the one own by HelenMirren. The chemistry between her and the owner from India lacks spark and the rest nof this movie is rather dull. Lasse Hallstrom who made a lot of good movie may have lost his touch. The character development just wasn't there to help the movie. A better movie about food and relationshop is the movie that I saw earliere this Summer and that film keeps getting into my mind as I saw this one and that is "Chef." I had fun with the movie. If the movie is still playing in theatres, it's best that you see "Chef" over the dull and worthless Journey.

This is a good although predictable movie. The characters worked well together and the story line held together well. The movie held my interest well until about 3/4 the way through then it was way too slow and boring.. They should have made this movie about 15 minutes shorter. The acting was good.

This is one of those movies that doesn't reach out and grab you by the collar to get your attention. Depending on the mood you're in when you see it for the first time, you might dismiss it as insignificant or uninteresting. If that's the case, be sure to give it another viewing some time, perhaps when you are more ready to watch a story unfold with subtle and endearing characters, and then tell me that you don't come away from it wanting to try at least one Indian dish!

Helen Mirren is one of those actors/actresses who could read from the phone book, and figure out how to make it interesting, so her casting was critical to its success. However, her character needs someone to play off, and that is the patriarch of the family that moves in across the road from her, played by Om Puri. Their interaction is pure gold.

The funny thing is, they're not really the primary characters in the story. Those are played by Manish Dayal who plays a young man with great ambitions that loves to cook wonderful food, and the delightful Charlotte Le Bon, who plays a local french woman that works for Helen Mirren, with ambitions and skills of her own.

I'm not a chef, and if I were more aware of cooking metaphors, I could come up with a clever one here, but I can say that the blending of the storylines and the performances of these and other actors in their roles, makes for a very enjoyable result.

I enjoyed this movie the first time I saw it, and I bought it on Blu-ray when it came out, because it's something that you can watch from time to time. Each viewing allows one to enjoy something new and/or something familiar, with both being a pleasing way to spend two hours.
