The 100 year old man who jumped out of the window and disappeared

Milborne Port Movies, in conjunction with Somerset Moviola are showing the film "The 100 year old man who jumped out of the window and disappeared" (certificate 15).

Allan is preparing for his 100th birthday celebration but escapes from his old peoples home at the last moment. . He quickly gets involved in an adventure involving drug-money, sought by both police and criminals. During this escapade, we discover Allan's remarkable life story in flashback. It turns out this shambling old Swede was a psychiatric inmate, mine demolition expert, Spanish Civil War hero, rocket scientist and spy. At one point or another, he was a saviour to Franco, Truman and Stalin.

The film adaptation of the hugely successful novel. A mix of high comedy and serious themes. Will go well with older audiences who want a reaffirmation of their worth!

The Hundred-Foot Journey (Certificate PG)

Milborne Port Movies, in conjunction with Somerset Moviola, are showing the film "The Hundred-Foot Journey" (Certificate PG)

Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. Displaced from their native India, the Kadam family, led by Papa (Om Puri), settles in the quaint village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val in the south of France. Filled with charm, it is both picturesque and elegant - the ideal place to settle down and open an Indian restaurant, the Maison Mumbai. That is, until the chilly chef proprietress of Le Saule Pleureur, a Michelin starred, classical French restaurant run by Madame Mallory (Academy Award (R)-winner Helen Mirren), gets wind of it. Her icy protests against the new Indian restaurant a hundred feet from her own, escalate to all out war between the two establishments - until Hassan's passion for French haute cuisine and for Mme. Mallory's enchanting sous chef, Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon), combine with his mysteriously delicious talent to weave magic between their two cultures and imbue Saint-Antonin with the flavors of life that even Mme. Mallory cannot ignore. At first Mme. Mallory's culinary rival, she eventually recognizes Hassan's gift as a chef and takes him under her wing.
