What's Buzzworthy: Foodie Movies

What's Buzzworthy: Foodie Movies

I got hungry just scrolling through your picks for my latest Buzzworthy Challenge. You all picked out a great group of foodie movies that have me craving everything from Greek food to candy to Thanksgiving dinner. Here are a few that sounded extra-yummy to me:

Eat Drink Man Woman
Bookmarked by Fab_Kitty, who wrote: "In this lovely Ang Lee film, several food preparation sequences are interspersed in the story of a widowed chef father having trouble with the maturation of his three young adult daughters. Where the family communicates best is over the dinner table and throughout this warm film, the best and most surprising lines are delivered between bites of mouthwatering morsels. A friendly warning: do NOT watch this movie while hungry!"

Like Water for Chocolate
This popular pick was bookmarked by both MDF20 and firedancyr7. Firedancyr7 called it "a story about a woman who can express her love and emotions through her cooking to such a point that those who eat it can feel her emotions as their own. An excellent movie — but be prepared it's a foreign film and that means subtitles."

Three more drool-worthy movies, plus a widget with all your picks, so

Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
Picked by yiddidea, who wrote: "A movie centered around chocolate and candy...works for me! Gene Wilder created a character that will stand the test of time as one of the strangest, yet endearing goofballs ever."

Long Life, Happiness and Prosperity
Tdamji picked this movie, saying: "The story centers around the daughter of Sandra Oh's character — who works in a Chinese restaurant. Many of the scenes take place within the restaurant. As well, another side story line takes place around a butcher shop whose owner wants to make his son take up the family business. This is one of my favorite movies, especially since Sandra Oh is in it! This is so sweet..."

Pieces of April
Linda McP bookmarked this movie. She wrote: "Pieces of April isn't going to win much critical acclaim, but I simply can't resist a movie about my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving!

I love movie that is centered around food one way or another. I will definitely check the first two choices, since I've seen the others. Great choices, buzz.

Oooh I couldn't remember its title, but I loved "Like Water for Chocolate"! (I actually didn't know it was a title) It's a really beautiful film, I almost cried when watching it.

"Like Water for Chocolate" is one of my favorite books and movie! Although I love Willy Wonka too. Great picks!

swwonder, you are so right about Patricia Clarkson; she also was nominated for a Golden Globe and several others. And, the movie itself was a favorite at Sundance. Guess I should have said, "although it didn't get all the critical acclaim that it deserved...." since it really is a satisfying film. Thanks for the mention, Buzz. Love all the picks!

I actually thought 'Pieces of April' deserved more attention that it got. Although I think Patricia Clarkson got an Oscar nomination for supporting actress.
