Like Water for Chocolate

Like Water for Chocolate ★★★★½

Lumi Cavazos was easily the best part of Wes Anderson's Bottle Rocket so I wanted to check out the film for which she won an award. Her performance was great! There was so much raw emotion all of which she transmits into her cooking. This is a comfort movie for me now. There's so much warmth and love for Mexican cuisine that I felt right at home. I did have some issues though, all of which had to do with Pedro🙄 i don't think I've ever hated a character more. She should have married John!! Regardless, this was a quirky tightly woven story with memorable characters and a beautiful ending. Check it out if you like.
