A Listmania! list by Judith Johnson "JJ" (Memphis, TN)
(VINE VOICE)    (REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "Amazing how many of these movies are foreign!"
Big Night
1.  Big Night DVD ~ Stanley Tucci
The list author says:
  "Sympathetic characters, culinary ecstasy, an extended dinner party sequence and the joy of cooking and consuming perfectly prepared eggs-what's not to love!!"
Used & New from: $29.77
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (304 customer reviews)

Mostly Martha [Region 2]
2.  Mostly Martha [Region 2] DVD ~ Martina Gedeck
The list author says:
  "I simply love this German movie about a high strung chef (Martina Gedneck)who can only express her affections through exquisitely prepared food. The perfectly photographed viands are practically pornographic and the supporting cast of wonderful actors make the subplots almost as interesting as the charming main story."
Used & New from: $377.72
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (250 customer reviews)

Babette's Feast
3.  Babette's Feast DVD ~ Stéphane Audran
The list author says:
  "An Isak Dinesen's story becomes a gorgeous Danish movie which recognizes that great cooking is a God-given talent. This Academy Award winner will win your heart and soul and make you salivate over a menu that includes fresh terrapin soup, quail in vol-au-vents, blinis, caviar and baba au rhum."
$29.95   Used & New from: $8.98

My Dinner with Andre (The Criterion Collection)
4.  My Dinner with Andre (The Criterion Collection) DVD ~ Andre Gregory
The list author says:
  "Directed by the great Louis Malle, this intelligent movie set in real time is about the joys of friendship, well-prepared food and great conversation. The last line has stuck with me for years!!"
$22.98
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (172 customer reviews)

Like Water for Chocolate
5.  Like Water for Chocolate DVD ~ Marco Leonardi
The list author says:
  "This delicious Mexican film concerns love, tradition, passion, communication, and food. There is a presence and influence of magic and mysticism throughout the entire film connected with the allegory of food. The screenplay was adapted from  s Laura Esquivel book. If you are curious about the food check out the book as it has the most amazing recipes!"
$15.98   Used & New from: $0.14
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (329 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Tampopo
6.  Tampopo DVD ~ Ken Watanabe
The list author says:
  "In this humorous "noodle western" about the joys of food, the main story is about trucker Goro (the fabulous Ken Watanabe) who rides into town like a modern Shane to help the widowed Tampopo set up the perfect Ramen noodle restaurant. Woven into this main story are a number of smaller stories about the importance of food and of making the perfect broth!"
Used & New from: $38.05

Kitchen Stories (Original Swedish/ Norwegian Version with English Subtitles) Salmer fra kjøkkenet
7.  Kitchen Stories (Original Swedish/ Norwegian Version with English Subtitles) Salmer fra kjøkkenet DVD ~ Joachim Calmeyer
The list author says:
  "This delightful, Academy Award nominated Norwegian movie serves up humor and human frailty in generous proportions. Set after World War II, it ostensibly examines the need for better kitchen design by making and recording field observations as it were."
Out of stock
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

The Green Butchers
8.  The Green Butchers DVD ~ Nikolaj Lie Kaas
The list author says:
  "This black, black Danish comedy is worth watching for a young Mads Mikkleson alone. It has a lot in common with Soylent Green but I will leave it to you to find out how!"
$39.98   Used & New from: $4.30
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (22 customer reviews)
