Fifth about The Seventh

The Hundred-Foot Journey

The Hundred-Foot Journey: the mix of diverse, but equally interesting, cultures, the lovely setting and the well-done combination of genres in Lasse Hallström’s film makes for an engaging and entertaining, if somewhat fluffy, experience. While the plot is somewhat busy, there is an underlying thematic consistency that is commendable. The older pair, Helen Mirren and Om Puri, is nearly magnificent; the younger counterpart, Charlotte Le Bon and Manish Dayal, is given less to do, but are nevertheless solid. Beautifully shot by Linus Sandgren, both the far-away vistas and extreme close-ups of food.
