The Hundred-Foot Journey (2014) review
Whenever you say somebody in Hollywood is a hard-working actor, they may have over 100 movies on their filmography, an astounding feat nowadays. Whenever you say somebody in Bollywood is a hard-working actor, you’ll be able to multiply that by two and even 3 times, simply. Within the case of Om Puri, one of many stars of Lasse Hallstrom’s movie model of “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” a novel by Richard C. Morais, he is an establishment, the star of over 11,000 motion pictures.
I could also be off by 10,800 or so, however the level stays… Puri is an icon, and if solely to observe him play reverse Helen Mirren, the 2 of them throwing perspective backwards and forwards at each other, I must advocate a viewing. Because it seems, the movie is a gentle pleasure at finest. There’s nothing essentially mistaken with it, and it is well-crafted, however the screenplay by Steven Knight is so remarkably freed from something resembling precise drama that I am virtually mystified by it.
Mainly, the movie tells the story of a younger man named Hassan (Manish Dayal) who decides he needs to be one of the best chef on the planet, after which he’s, and nothing actually will get in his manner or slows him down in any respect, and he additionally will get the woman and every part else he needs. The top.
The advertising and marketing for the movie is misleading, making it appear like it is all concerning the cultural conflict between French conventional delicacies within the type of Madame Mallory (Mirren) and Indian delicacies within the type of Papa Kadam (Puri), every of them operating eating places instantly throughout the road from each other. And whereas that’s, certainly, a part of the movie, it is a very small half. It will be like promoting “Star Wars” because the story of some individuals who play chess on a spaceship.
The movie traces Hassan’s journey from when he’s a younger boy and he first discovers simply how overwhelming a sensory expertise cooking may be, and by the point he and his household find yourself settling in a small French village, there’s already been fairly a little bit of set-up. Hassan’s mom dies in a fireplace when he is younger, and whereas she begins his coaching as a chef, Hassan is left to fend for himself. After they discover themselves stranded in a selected French city as a result of their automobile’s brakes fail, Papa decides to settle there.
The battle between Madame Mallory and Papa is definitely disbursed with pretty rapidly. The movie is extra fascinated with Hassan’s slowly dawning fascination with French meals and his relationship with Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon), the sous chef at Mallory’s restaurant. She helps Hassan begin to perceive French cooking, after which has to observe as he blows previous her on his option to the highest.
Even then, the movie has a bigger canvass it needs to make the most of, and it follows Hassan out into the world, and it doesn’t matter what, it simply appears to be clean crusing. The movie does not even faux to throw obstacles in Hassan’s manner. It seems like a movie that’s making an attempt to make the viewers really feel good, nevertheless it rings hole, and regardless of how good the forged is and the way laborious Hallstrom tries, it by no means feels genuine. Nice cooking movies want to indicate us simply how a lot of an individual’s coronary heart and soul are combined up of their cooking, and this movie talks about it with out incomes it in any manner.
Linus Sandgren’s images is lush and vivid, and it is laborious to make the south of France look horrible. He additionally takes full benefit of simply how fairly each of the younger leads are. However just like the script, the images feels prefer it captures the floor, and not one of the actuality that grounds a rustic’s delicacies, that connects it to the land it got here from. I do not really feel the identical ardour for meals right here that I do once I watch “Huge Evening” or this yr’s “Chef,” a film that does a a lot better job of displaying simply how tied to somebody’s identification their cooking is. The forged tries their finest, and so they all do respectable work, however the characters they’re enjoying barely register, working extra as collections of acquainted tics than precise folks.
If I had been to name the movie a disappointment, it could suggest that I anticipated one thing extra from it. Simply throwing the load of Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielberg behind this trifle does not give it any actual weight. It’s, at finest, a light-weight dessert, one which dissolves instantly, simply forgotten as quickly because it’s gone.
