Now i´m not a big fan of Romance movies mostly because I feel they're not realistic and display the wrong image of Romance. Like Water For Chocolate offers what so many Romance movies nowadays lack, true depiction of Romance, a romantic story that's memorable, and capturing your emotions as you watch this movie.
This movie is about how life used to be in Mexico. It is a love story between Pedro and Tita, and why they coudn't get married because Tita's mother wanted her oldest daughter to get married first, and have Tita to stay and take care of her. It shows how marriage was imposed on those times, and how a love between two people can change everything. It's was just magical seeing this story unfold on screen, I literally found myself going through many different emotions while watching this.
Everything just works so well in this movie from the wonderful cast to the tiniest details. There is so many ways describe how I felt while watching this movie, but so little words that can fully express what a incredible experience it is. It brought me smiles and tears to my eyes, that's rare for me when I watch a movie.
Like Water For Chocolate is a classic Romance story that powerfully depicts Romance and will change your views on it. In a time with so many awful Romance movies, you owe it yo yourself to watch this and reminds yourself why you like Romance in movies and why you cherish love in your life.
