Sweet story of family, food and discovery

'The Hundred-Foot Journey' was a little like 'Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' for me - I had quite low expectations as I thought it was going to be an "old lady movie". Thankfully, I was proven wrong and instead was treated to a nice little film about following your dreams.

The premise is simple - an Indian family move to London, get sick of the cold/rain (who wouldn't!) and travel to continental Europe to find a new place to settle and start a restaurant. This place happens to be a picturesque little village in Southern France - however, their new restaurant happens to be next to a Michelin-rated French restaurant, and a rivalry ensues.

The performances from Puri as the Dad and Mirren as the French restaurant owner are great and quite nuanced, with Hassan (Daval) and Marguerite (the huge-eyed Le Bon) playing the young love interests/competing chefs. It's great to see how their friendship evolves as Hassan goes on his food journey. Some parts of this feel like a cooking show, but not enough to put you off. It has funny moments, touching moments and a nice ending - plenty of messages about openness and accepting other cultures, and generally giving something/someone a chance.

A Good Production Value; A Not-So Good Story

I didn't know what to expect with this movie. The only reason I watched it was because my family likes it, so I watched it with them. I was interested in the beginning but soon discovered how predictable the story is. I saw almost every major event coming 5-20 minutes before it happened. This, of course, sucked out the enjoyment for me.

The shots of food were very appetizing and colorful (despite watching on a DVD player which seems very blurry nowadays). The cinematography was good; there were many shots that looked very good. I can't recall there even being a soundtrack, so take that how you will.

I noticed that the pacing wasn't very good. Near the beginning of the second act, I thought it was going to end because the pacing was very slow and there was no more conflict. There was nothing more to continue the story until later on when another predictable event happened. Half an hour before the movie ended, I already knew exactly how it was going to end and got extremely bored.

Overall, I wouldn't watch this movie unless you want mindless feel-goodness.
