Movie review score
3.5/5

What’s it about?
Forced to flee their homeland, an Indian family moves to France with the hope of educating the locals on their traditional cuisine.  The owner of the Michelin-starred restaurant a mere hundred feet across the road (Helen Miren) isn’t too happy.

What did we think?
Elizabeth says: Forget chicken soup for the soul: this is chicken tikka. A tome on cross-cultural tolerance and acceptance as well as being a feast for the eyes, this is a food lover’s paradise. Gorgeously shot, the tale of gastronomic whiz kid Hasan will linger on the palate after the meal is over… if you like that sort of thing. If not, it could be a little too sweet for you.

    This film was great. It felt a bit long, like three separate movie scripts were happening one after the other but ultimately it was enjoyable all the way through. Wonderful performances.

    Also 3 and a half stars.
