For those of you who have been following along about the motion picture, The Hundred Foot Journey, which was filmed in St. Antonin last summer, here is the latest update. The French trailer came out about a month after the American trailer. The French version of the film comes with a title change, instead of The Hundred Foot Journey it is called
Les Recettes du Bonheur.
The bad news (for me at least) is that the opening date in France is also a month after the American. In the states the film opens August 8 but here in France it will open on September 10. And that is disappointing for me because my flight back home is September 6th. I will just miss it!
I had so hoped to watch this film here in the town where it was made. But that is not to be. The beautiful Cinema Le Querlys is my favorite movie house in all the world. It would have been the perfect place to share this film with all of the people of the town that took part in it in one way or another. The posters are already up & everyone is excited to see the results of all that took place last summer. How I wish I would be here for the opening as well.
I found an interview (below) with Helen Mirren , who stars in the film, talking about her role. The interview is a bit choppy but if you watch it through to the end she talks about filming in this area. She says how she jumped at the chance to work in this part of France & that she hopes the film will give the audience a taste of how incredibly beautiful it is in this part of the world. These are sentiments with which I totally agree.
If you missed my posts last summer about the making of the film you can check out some of them here * * * * .
Sim Carter also did some very interesting posts on her blog Chapter 1 Take 1 about the film, which you can see here.
I am linking to Paulita's Dreaming of France today.
Have a great week everybody!
