How Lasse Hallstrom Spiced Up 'The Hundred-Foot Journey' with Sexy Food, 35 mm, and A.R. Rahman

"I don't think it's about the close-ups of the food," says "The Hundred-Foot Journey" director Lasse Hallstrom. "I think it's about the sensuality of the performances. Another attraction with this story was that I could play around with merging the sounds, the languages [and the tasty hybrid score by composer A.R. Rahman]. There’s a lot of different languages that are not translated, so it’s another spice, another color of the film that I appreciated."
