Producers Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielberg arrive for the world premiere of the film The Hundred-Foot Journey in New York. Journey has all the makings of a great movie about food Women's Jordan Phillips Jersey , but the end result leaves viewers hungry.

Take one Oscar-winning British actress. Add an appealing supporting cast. Lather on the picturesque French countryside. Sprinkle liberally with gorgeous food shots, from bubbling, spicy Indian delicacies to perfectly composed French plates of pigeon and truffles.

And then heap on a heavy serving of corn.

What is it about recent food movies - Jon Favreau's Chef and now Lasse Hallstrom's The Hundred-Foot Journey - that, despite their virtues, they have to be so darned corny, so dewy-eyed, with everything tied up in a feel-good bow at the end? It's as if all that great food on set had this tranquilizing effect, sending everyone off Women's DeVante Parker Jersey , sated and smiling, with great life lessons learned, into a rosy sunset.

That's not to say there isn't a lot going for Journey (as there was for the enjoyable Chef), an adaptation of the novel by Richard Morais about an Indian family who opens a restaurant in a French village. Besides the above-mentioned virtues, notably the always delightful Helen Mirren and the entertaining Indian actor Om Puri, it has the absurdly good-looking couple of Manish Dayal, as a gifted young Indian chef, and Charlotte Le Bon Women's Xavien Howard Jersey , as the gorgeous sous-chef who teaches him the joys of haute cuisine (and not much more-this is a PG-rated movie).

It also has a script by the talented Steven Knight, and a score by Oscar-winner A. R. Rahman (Slumdog Millionaire). Oh, and it's produced by Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielberg.

Given all these lovely ingredients, then, why is the final product so bland - and, not to lay on too many cooking metaphors, reductive? A couple of scenes feel borrowed from what remains the most original food movie of all, the animated Ratatouille.

We begin in India Women's Laremy Tunsil Jersey , where we meet the food-loving Kadam family. During a night of political unrest, their restaurant is torched by a mob. Having lost everything, they end up in France, where, driving along, their brakes fail and they tumble into the quaint village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val. Family patriarch Papa (Puri) decides this is where they'll open their new restaurant, Maison Mumbai.

Only one problem: Across the street - 100 feet, actually - is the Michelin-starred Le Saule Pleureur Women's Cordrea Tankersley Jersey , run by Madame Mallory, for whom the word "prickly" seems too mellow. Madame is not happy, first because the intruders play loud music, and second, because, well, she's a snooty Frenchwoman.

So pointedly snooty, in fact Women's Raekwon McMillan Jersey , that we instantly know the movie's main plot development will be the gradual un-snootening (that may not be a word) of Madame Mallory. Just as clear: The battle between her and Papa, which involves filling official complaints to the town's mayor, will soften into something much sweeter.

Meanwhile, Papa's handsome son Hassan (Dayal) is becoming enamored of French cooking, helped along by Madame Mallory's fetching sous-chef Marguerite (Le Bon). It is Marguerite who, when the family's brakes failed, stopped on the road to help, stunned them with her super-model beauty Women's Charles Harris Jersey , gave them rope to tow their car, and whipped up a fabulous meal in minutes. (This ALWAYS happens with road accidents in France.)

Their budding relationship, though, plays second fiddle to their professional goals. Madame Mallory, recognizing Hassan's talent, asks him to join her kitchen. Suddenly, they're competitors. But Hassan is the clear star. His talent takes him as far as Paris, where he becomes the chef of a flashy restaurant that practices molecular gastronomy. Suddenly Davon Godchaux Jersey , Hassan becomes edgy and hip. He's profiled in top magazines.

But is he truly happy? Can he forget the quaint pleasures of the village where he started, or the gorgeous Marguerite, or the soulful pleasures of simple food?

For the answers, you'll have to see the film, and to be sure, it will be a pleasurable two hours - though lacking, cinematically, in a key ingredient that Hassan Chase Allen Jersey , in fact, knows a lot about:

A little spice.


PRAGUE, Sept. 7 (Xinhua) -- Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka said Thursday that his country and Italy were preparing a joint project with which they could help migrants in the African country of Cote d'Ivoire.

Sobotka made the statement at a press conference after meeting his Italian counterpart Paolo Gentiloni. When it came to migration, Cote d'Ivoire was one of the source countries, Sobotka said.

He said that Czech Republic was to contribute roughly one million euros (1.2 million U.S. dollars) to the project which will help improve living conditions of the people who would return from other countries to Cote d'Ivoire.

In cooperation with Italy, the money was to help refugees gain accommodation, health care and drinking water, and to help integrate into society Mike Hull Jersey , according to Sobotka.

Sobotka and Gentiloni admitted that the two countries had different views on the migrant crisis. The Czech Republic was against the redistribution of refugees, and it rejected the quota as not functioning.

The Czech government also disagreed with the criticism that Prague and several other EU countries were inconsistent over migration, Sobotka said, adding that it primarily wanted to solve the problem in their countries of origin.

Gentiloni said that all EU member states must respect Wednesday's decision of the European Court of Justice to dismiss the lawsuit filed by Slovakia and Hungary, which challenged a European Council decision of obligatory relocation of asylum seekers by quota among the member countries.

He said that the future of European integration cannot lie in someone being integrated or forced out, and there was no interest in fos.
