one of the best foodie movies ever.

i am watching "fatso" with dom delouise and anne bancroft. great foodie movie. reminds me of so many italian friends' families from queens and brooklyn when i was growing up. has anyone ever seen it? it's worth a rental, imho...

Havent seen that in ages... here's a few more picks:

Eat drink man woman: if you are a fan of asian cuisine, ang lee or romantic bittersweet dramas... who am I kidding! Every one and their mother should see this movie. Its almost flawless.

Like water for chocolate: or better yet, read the novel!

Babbets Feast: havent seen it in YEARS but I remember loving it and being impressed by the cinematographic quiality.

Once swore I was going to make "Babette's Feast". Maybe that should be my goal for '05. There's also one about Italian immigrants running a restauraunt. I'll have to re-read the posts, maybe it's already been mentioned. 'Joy Luck Club' also has a lot of food in it, but of course is nowhere near 'Eat Drink Man Woman' for sheer food enjoyment.

southerncook - I read Like Water For Chocolate years before it was made into a movie - I LOVE THAT BOOK!!!!! I'll have to vote with you on this one.

I've still never seen the movie.

Tortilla Soup is the Mexican-American remake of that film. One of my favorites of all time.
