Like Water For Chocolate

Like Water For Chocolate is one of my favourite films. It is based on Laura Esquivel´s novel and directed by Alfonso Arau.
Set in Mexico during the revolutionary war, the magnificent and turbulent love story of Tita and Pedro unfolds. According to the family tradition, as the youngest daughter, it was Tita’s duty to not marry and care for her mother. Pedro, unable to stay away from Tita, accepts her mother’s offer and marries Tita’s older sister. Heart broken, Tita pours her heart into her cooking, channeling all of her passions and frustrations, which in turn were transferred to those she fed. Eventually, Tita will have to choose between following tradition or her heart

Ooh I've always wanted to see this film. Now I think I am going to have to make it happen.
In my head I think I might have mixed it up with another film called 'eat drink man woman' which is Chinese and revolves around food. Have you seen that one? It is good. xxx

También es una de mis libros favoritos y una gran adaptación al cine.

I never saw the film, but i read the book and was impresssed by the story an by the personality of Tita. Whenever I get the chance to see the film I will take it. She reminds of the strong confident women of ms. allendes books.

I loved both the movie and the book. Love poured in cooking recipes.
Another movie -not exactly similar but sensuous in the same way was Dona Flor and her two husbands.

This has reminded me that my mum has told me several times that she thinks I would enjoy both the book and the film. I look forward to both.

I cannot believe I have never seen this movie. I remember when it was originally released but just never went to see it. I guess I'm more of an action movie sort of girl.

I cannot remember if I have seen this film but I don't think so. The book was one of my favourites though since I was a teenager that now you have made me nostalgic! I have to see the film and cook foods with rosepetals!

this is a great movie, portraying love, poetry, beautiful imagery... a film that I believe reflects well some of your own qualities!

Underemployed dijo...

I have read the book, but not seen the movie. The book made me cry, and since I am living apart from my husband to care for my mother, I'm sure I will get hysterical if I watch the movie!

Miss Simmonds Says dijo...

I'll definitely look for this book and film, thank you! xxxx

Fashionistable dijo...

Yes I would say it is absolutley one of my favourite books and films too. Xxxx
