  3. jananonloso's rating of the film Like Water for Chocolate

    A culinary, passionate, melancholic fairytale. Some might say it is too cheasy, but I found it refreshing.

  4. Carolina's rating of the film Like Water for Chocolate

    Realismo fantástico em voga. <3

  5. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Like Water for Chocolate

    I couldn't escape this in the early 90s-- everyone was teaching it. Hopefully the vogue has passed.

  6. Pedro_Fernandes's rating of the film Like Water for Chocolate

    El doctor es la verdadera estrella

  7. keremebrulee's rating of the film Like Water for Chocolate

    A heart-warming firm with touch of a Marquez story

  8. Louisa Savignon's rating of the film Like Water for Chocolate

    é brega. mas uma breguice sincera. true dramalhão mexicano, at its best. uma novela do sbt dos anos 90 toda grudada pra caber em 105 min. vale a pena pelo contexto, chega a ser hilário na mexicanice at some points

  9. Cara's rating of the film Like Water for Chocolate

    Beautiful story with hushed gold tones lighting every scene, but felt more like a series of charming vignettes than a flowing film.

  10. Lorna Singh's rating of the film Like Water for Chocolate

    Romeo and Juliet as almost a fairy tale. With other elements---the Mexican revolution and family relations on a farm in early 20th century. And the important role of food.

  11. Yashoda's rating of the film Like Water for Chocolate

    Apart from a crackerjack performance from the female lead, I wouldn't really recommend it to anyone. Like Amelie, a wildly successful foreign film that still couldn't match the dollars, it's an artifact of another era or film-making, where romance exists as a (very silly) end unto itself.

  12. Cinthia Pauli's rating of the film Like Water for Chocolate

    this synopsis it isn't fair to the movie

  13. vaquiros's rating of the film Like Water for Chocolate

    realismo magico.. preciosa. la frase "No es por vicio, ni por fornicio, sino para dar un hijo a tu servicio." ...priceless

  14. Veritas Verte's rating of the film Like Water for Chocolate

    Trite and disappointing--though admittedly lovely at times.

  15. Pierluigi Puccini's rating of the film Like Water for Chocolate

    Latin american magic realism at its best. charming, extremely beautiful and faithful to the novel.
