The Hundred-Foot Journey” is a film that demands that you take it s

With its feel-good themes of multicultural understanding, it is about Somet

Important. It even comes with the stamp of approval from titanic tastemakers

Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielberg, who both serve as producers. What more

convincing could you possibly need?

There’s something familiar about the treacly and sanctimonious way 
this film is

being packaged. It reeks of late-‘90s/early ‘00s Miramax fa
re: films with

tasteful yet ubiquitous ad campaigns and unabashed Oscar aspirations which

suggested that seeing them (and, more importantly, voting for them) would m

you a better person. Films like “The Cider House Rules,” 
“Chocolat” and “The

Shipping News.” Films by Swedish director Lasse Hallstrom.

Hallstrom just happens to be the director here, as well, and the similariti

to “Chocolat” are inescapable. Stop me if think you��
�ve heard this one before: A

family moves into a quaint but closed-minded French village and shakes thin

up with an enticing array of culinary delicacies. This new enterprise happe

to sit across the street from a conservative and revered building that�
��s a town

treasure. But the food in question isn’t a bon bon this time��
�rather, the movie

is the bon bon itself.

But despite being handsomely crafted, well acted and even sufficiently

enjoyable, “The Hundred-Foot Journey” is also conventional 
and predictable. And

for a film that’s all about opening up your senses and sampling spi
cy, exotic

tastes, this comic drama is entirely too safe and even a little bland.

What livens things up, though, is the interplay between Helen Mirren and Om

Puri as battling restaurant owners operating across the street from each

other—100 feet away from each other, to be exact, a short but fraug
ht trip that

various characters take for various reasons. Watching these veteran actors

stoop to sabotage each other provides a consistent source of laughs. She�
��s all

sharp angles, piercing looks and biting quips; he’s all round jovia

boisterous blasts and warmhearted optimism. The contrast between the British

Oscar-winner and the Indian acting legend offers the only tension in this

otherwise soft and gooey dish—that is, until the film goes all soft
 and gooey,


Mirren stars as Madame Mallory, owner of Le Saule Pleurer (The Weeping Will

an elegant and expensive French restaurant that’s the winner of a p

Michelin star. But one star isn’t enough for the coldly driven Mme.

wants another, and then another.

But her bloodless quest for gourmet grandeur is interrupted by the arrival

across the street of an Indian family: the Kadams, who’ve been wand
ering around

Europe ever since their beloved restaurant back home burned down during

political rioting. When the brakes on their car malfunction on a treacherous

stretch of spectacular countryside, Papa (Puri) insists it’s a sign
 from his

late wife and decides to open a new eatery in the charming town at the bott

of the hill.

Never mind that one of the most celebrated restaurants in all of France is

sitting right across the street from the empty building he rents. Never mind

that they are in an insular part of the country where the residents probably

don’t even know what Indian cuisine is, much less like it, as his c

point out. He has faith in his food—and in his son, Hassan (Manish 
Dayal), a

brilliant, young chef.

Just as Papa and Mme. Mallory strike up a sparky rivalry, Hassan enjoys a

flirtatious relationship with French sous chef Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon,

who played an early model and muse in the recent “Yves Saint Lauren
t” biopic).

The script from Steven Wright (who also wrote the far trickier “Loc
ke” from

earlier this year, as well as “Dirty Pretty Things” and �
��Eastern Promises”) is

full of such tidy parallels, as well as trite and overly simplistic

proclamations about how food inspires memories. Dayal and Le Bon do look lo

together, though, and share a light, enjoyable chemistry.

Then again, it all looks lovely—both the French and Indian dishes a
s well as

the lush, rolling surroundings, which we see through all four seasons; the 

of cinematographer Linus Sandgren, who recently shot “American Hust
le.” This

sweetly pleasing combination of ingredients would have been perfectly suita

if the film didn’t take a wild and needless detour in the third act
. That’s

when it becomes an even less interesting movie than it already was, in spit
e of

its loftier aspirations.
