Like Water for Chocolate Review


Remember the furor in 1993 when Like Water for Chocolate hit American screens? It went on to be, at the time, one of the biggest foreign films ever, and nary a woman would be seen in public without a copy of Laura Esquivel's novel/cookbook under her arm.

Today, Chocolate seems virtually forgotten. Once-rising star Lumi Cavazos? Now faded into near-oblivion. Still, remembering the subtle power of the film and its, ahem, magic chef makes you realize this was a truly good flick for its time. On pure heart, Chocolate had a little bit for everybody. But what was it really all about? Damned if I can remember.
