If you’re a frequent reader of this blog, you are most likely someone who aren’t too different from myself – a person who loves his/her food, and if you happen to be someone who enjoys movies as well, then I have something that may fancy your attention – The Hundred-Foot Journey. Read through this article and I’ll also tell you how you can score a pair of Hundred Foot Journey in season Pass as well. hundred foot journey with Om Puri, Manish Dayal, and Helen Mirren hundred foot journey with Om Puri, Manish Dayal, and Helen Mirren First, the skinny – In DreamWorks Pictures’ “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” the opening of a new Indian restaurant in the south of France next to a famous Michelin-starred eatery is nearly cause for a heated battle between the two establishments, until Le Saule Pleureur’s icy proprietress, Madame Mallory, recognizes her rival’s undeniable brilliance for preparing masterful meals. And of course, watch the trailer: The movie will be released in Malaysia on August 28, 2014, and is actually one of my most anticipated movies this year. There are multiple reasons for this. First and foremost, it is a movie about food, the last food themed movie I can remember was Ratatouille, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Then there’s Helen Mirren, a fantastic actor with an Academy Award for Best Actress, four BAFTAs, three Golden Globes, four Emmy Awards, and two Cannes Film Festival Best Actress Awards under her belt. Furthermore, from what I can gather from the trailer, the cinematography looks amazing, it will be a visual feast. Hundred Foot Journey The movie is actually based on the novel written by Richard C. Morais that was published in 2010. I find that the juxtaposition provided in the story is something that we often see in everyday life, including the old fashion establishments and newer, more edgy restaurants even within KL itself. For example, fusion food often gets a bad rep among food critics, but personally I think that without restaurateurs who aren’t afraid to experiment and trail blaze, food culture cannot progress. Kinda like when the character Hassan Kadam said about the dish in the trailer when Madame Mallory commented that the recipe has been around for 200 years – “perhaps 200 years is long enough“. hundred foot journey poster I think this movie shows a lot of promise and I will for sure head to the cinema to catch it.

    I want to watch this movie because I love to see chefs preparing food. The way they crafted their masterpiece with care and passion is totally wonderful and their food is the representation of their mind and soul. It would be great if I could watch the movie and learn how these two restaurateurs cope with their differences on ways to produce great food and satisfy their customers.

    Oooooo….I saw the trailer on youtube a while ago and I so so so love it!!! Unfortunately, I do not think they will show this in our cineplexes here in this little town. They only show the box-office grossers like Transformers, X-Men and those kind of movies. Not for me, thank you very much. I’ve seen the book in the bookstore here though – and I’m going to buy that for my daughter for her birthday. I bet she would enjoy reading it!

    Good luck to all trying their luck at getting the tickets to the movie. I am so so so jealous. Wish I were there, not here. 🙁

    I wanna watch the movie because “life’s greatest journey begins with the first step” – the “first step” being taking part in this competition to win the tickets for the movie. Oh, and I love food and movies-combining the two is a recipe for a great, if not one of “life’s greatest journeys”. 🙂
