Tortilla SoupDirector: Maria Ripoll, Hector Elizondo, Jacqueline Obradors, Elizabeth Peña
A remake of Ang Lee's family comedy Eat Drink Man Woman, Maria Ripoli's Hispanic-American ensemble feature set in Southern California about a veteran chef named Martin Naranjo (Hector Elizondo), who is slowly losing his sense of taste. He has three daughters, all of whom have chosen different paths. There is Letitia (Elizabeth Pena), the oldest and most repressed of the bunch, a rigid schoolteacher who is a member of the Christian faith. His youngest, Maribel (Tamara Mello), is the most assured, though plagued by doubts. His middle daughter Carmen (Jacqueline Obradors) is most like him and shares his taste for cooking, but has chosen a career as a corporate consultant, which makes for a more secure lifestyle. She is offered a high-profile job in Barcelona, which causes a rift in the family setting. Maribel soon finds herself drawn to a handsome Brazilian student (Nikolai Kinski), and Letitia is gaining affection for Orlando (Paul Rodriguez), an awkward ballplayer whom her students have sent mistaken love letters to without her knowing. Also at their dinners are a shy single mother (Constance Marie) and her obnoxious mother (Raquel Welch), who has her sights set on Martin's affections. Tortilla Soup is Maria Ripoli's second major feature, after her whimsical 1998 feature Twice Upon a Yesterday.

Good movie. Just one minor annoyance - for those who are like me and prefer Widescreen format, this most definitely is not widescreen. The information is incorrect. The ISBN and UPC matched but the description is off. There is no side 1 and side 2. I decided to keep it anyways because I don't feel like trying to swap it out.
this was a great movie I saw it in my spanish four class. I enjoyed it a lot, a great latino movie !!!
When i saw this movie i liked and we got the word perhaps perhaps perhaps
Tortilla Soup what a movie, it showed how a father cared about his daughters and also how to make those delicious plates. Once you see Tortilla Soup you want to keep watching it over and over again, it is a fun loving movie to have and to watch. A very well done film.
I started to watch it in Spanish class and didn't get a chance to finish. I wish I had! It's a fun movie that keeps you smiling.
I enjoyed this movie very much. It was realistic and funny. I especially loved Hector Elizondo as the father.
