Travel Challenge, Day 10 - A Favorite Foreign Film

**One of the worst things that can happen to a blogger? Not having internet access at home! Let's hope everything gets resolved soon!**

Day 10 - Favorite foreign film

I think it's "Como Agua Para Chocolate (Like Water for Chocolate)", a film from Mexico, which is based on the book of the same name by Laura Esquivel. It combines some of my favorite things in one movie: romance and food. I love the magical realism of the story and how the heroine, Tita, expresses her emotion through food. Enjoy this clip. I couldn't find this scene in Spanish with English subtitles, so here it is first in Spanish and then English.

English version

I'd be interested in hearing about your favorite foreign film.

Oh, wow... foreign films! I have so many. I love Gong Li, great actress -- and she did a number of great films in the 90s, like Raise the Red Lantern; wonderful film.

I also really Pedro Almodovar's films (Volver is a favorite)... "classics" like Amelie and Il Postino... a more recent one that my husband & I liked is Perseopolis.
