This is one of the first movies of what we called "Nuevo cine mexicano" (New mexican cinema) after a very bad period of silly comedies they used to in the 70's and 80's.
This movie is based in the book of the same name "Como agua para chocolate" (Like water for chocolate) written by Laura Esquivel.
I have seen it so many times, even when I was very young and remember always the scene where Tita cooks a dish made of quail and rose petals for the guy she liked . :-)
