Com­edy ⊲ Cho­co­lat direc­tor Lasse Hall­ström serves up the cin­e­matic equiv­a­lent of com­fort food with this culi­nary cul­ture-clash com­edy. The film may be cosy and pre­dictable but it goes down a treat. The set­ting is a small, pic­turesque vil­lage in the South of France where He­len Mir­ren’s snooty, Miche­lin­starred restau­rant goes head-to-head with Om Puri’s new In­dian eaterie in a tit-for-tat bat­tle of wills. Puri and Mir­ren’s de­li­cious odd-cou­ple chem­istry makes the film im­mensely watch­able. Dir: Lasse Hall­ström 2014, PG, 140min
