The other day I saw l'Outremangeur (The Over Eater, 2002) and it made me think of other films in which food and eating plays an important role. I wonder if you can add to the list (in no particular order):
- La Grande Bouffe
- Tampopo
- Eat, Drink, Man, Woman
- The Cook, the Thief, his Wife and her Lover
- Who is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe?
- Monty Python's Meaning of Life (the part in the restaurant)
- Myglaren
- Babettes Feast

Babettes Feast was a wonderful film.
La Grande Bouffe was a great film too, but not for the 'happy end' crowd. It had a cast of super stars who loved to eat.

How I loved Big Night...


Like Water for Chocolate,
a totally different movie than Bread and Chocolate, which I liked better.

Eat Drink Man Woman (or something like that)

Down and Dirty (Sporchi e Brutti), the spaghetti scene.

hey joefromchicago....
speaking of MAJOR AWARDS....

The part of A Christmans Story dealing with the turkey being stolen by the bumpusses dogs.

And the mashed potatos.....

Aside - Everytime I get a potential MAJOR AWARD marked FRAGILE, I must announce loudly to everyone...."Look! I've gotten another package from Italy!"





Oh - mashed potatos.....Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

Yeah, come to think of it, there are a lot of scenes involving food and drink in A Christmas Story.

@Paaskynen,

He also had one called either Tanto Oregano or Troppo Oregano, but I can't find a link for that, other than an earlier comment by myself on a2k.

@ossobuco,
I must have added Bread and Chocolate to this thread, but don't see it in a cursory glance -
http://www.amazon.com/Bread-Chocolate-Nino-Manfredi/dp/B00005U1YR

(I watched it again a few months ago, dvd from netflix)
