Has anyone read the book The Hundred-Foot Journey by Richard C. Morais? I recently watched the movie starring Helen Mirren, Manish Dayal, Om Puri and Charlotte Le Bon. It has got to be my favourite movie this year and one of my favourites of all time. I absolutely loved it!
I loved the storyline and the moral behind the story. It's not just about food, but also the clash and coming together of different cultures. The characters were excellent. You will laugh but love Om Puri's Papa and his thriftiness or stubbornness. Helen Mirren plays an excellent Madame Mallory. And Hassan and Marguerite (Manish and Charlotte), I could just watch their chemistry sparkle over and over again.
So, has anyone read the book? I bought it on my kindle so it is on my reading list (which is currently really long!). If you've read it, I'd like to know what you think. If you've read it and watched the movie as well, what did you think? Does the movie compare with the book? Please let me know!
And if you haven't seen the movie, here's the trailer...
