Utterly charming tale will make you (among many other nice emotions) feel hungry for both the wonderful food and for the amazing Southern France scenery. Simply put, the film is a sight to behold. Sure, it gets a bit sappy and sentimental sometimes, and it is a bit predictable...but when it "tastes" this good, who really cares? Helen Mirren as always is excellent but also notable are costars Om Puri and Manish Dayal. All shine in this most enjoyable "journey".
