Oscar-winning actress Helen Mirren returns to the small screens in Romania on Sunday, May 17 on Antena 1, with a delicious performance in the comedy The Hundred-Foot Journey (titled in Romania War in the Kitchen), a film produced by Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey.
Directed by Lasse Hallström (The Cider House Rules, Hachi: A Dog's Tale, Chocolate), The Hundred-Foot Journey tells the story of Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal), a culinary genius from India, capable of making innovative dishes. Forced to leave their homeland, Hassan's family settles in a picturesque town in the south of France, the ideal place to open an Indian restaurant.
But Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren), the authoritative owner of a nearby luxury restaurant, doesn't seem to be happy about the new business.
The dispute between the two locations becomes more and more fierce until Hassan's talent and passion for French gastronomy manage to impress Madame Mallory.
The film is based on the novel The Hundred-Foot Journey, an international bestseller by Richard Morais, which has been published in over 30 countries.
The comedy The Hundred-Foot Journey abounds in flavours and recipes that will delight viewers. With a lot of passion for the profession, a struggle to fit in and funny moments, the comedy brings together two completely different worlds and the talent of a young man determined to achieve success through his cooking.
The Hundred-Foot Journey can be seen on Sunday 17 May at 13:30 on Antena 1 and on the same day at 04:00.
