Title: Como agua para chocolate (Like Water for Chocolate)
Very rarely does a film do justice to the book on which it's based, but, en mi opinión humilde, the movie Like Water for Chocolate does a great job. Perhaps one of the most well known Spanish-language films in the US that brings to mind the Latin American twist on Magical Realism, the story is about Tita and Pedro, a young couple who fall in love but are not able to marry because of Tita's family tradition. Pedro instead marries Tita's older sister as a way to be near Tita. Tita, who grew up in the kitchen helping and learning from her family cook Nacha, pours her passion into cooking which has a magical way of affecting her dinner guests.
