Un viaje de diez metros (The Hundred Foot Journey) – Trailer latino

Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) es un ingenuo profesional culinario con un paladar insuperable. La familia Kadam, lejos de su India natal y liderados por Papa (Om Puri), se establecen en el pequeño pueblo de Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val en el sur de Francia. Lleno de encanto, tan pintoresco como elegante, es el lugar ideal para establecer su hogar y abrir un restaurante indio, la Maison Mumbai. O eso parece hasta que la fría propietaria de Le Saul Pleureur, un restaurante francés clásico galardonado con una estrella Michelin, regentado por Madame Mallory (la ganadora del Premio de la Academia Helen Mirren) se hace eco de ello.

Sus gélidas protestas en contra del nuevo restaurante indio a diez metros de su propio restaurante escalan y acaban en una guerra declarada entre los dos locales. Pero la pasión de Hassan por la haute cuisinefrancesa y por la encantadora segunda chef de Madame Mallory, Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon), junto con su delicioso y misterioso talento, hace que surja algo mágico combinando ambas culturas y llenando Saint-Antonin de los mejores sabores, algo que incluso Madame Mallory no puede ignorar. Madam Mallory acaba reconociendo el don de Hassan, su rival culinario, como chef y lo convierte en su protegido.
