9.Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory

Everyone actually love Wallace & Gromit with their mini films for example A Grand Day Out and The Wrong Trousers, it’s their first major outing as a full-length movie. It is brilliant and cliché of other films which is really clever, the vocal talent is outstanding especially from Ralph Fiennes and Helena Bonham Carter, in a well-made film for all ages.

A beautiful, witty, funny, heartfelt film that brim with funny one liner and it is gorgeous to watch. It is so simple to follow and with colourful characters in a superbly made film.

6.The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society

Free – spirited writer Juliet Ashton forms a life – changing bond with the delightful and eccentric Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, when she decides to write about the book club they formed during the occupation of Guernsey in WWII.

When a hungry bear wakes up to see R.J, a raccoon, steal his provisions and then accidentally throw them all over the streets, he threatens to kill him if he does not return every single item he took from him. RJ has six days to steal from every human’s kitchen he can find. Bruce Willis don’t normally do animation film but this one is excellent as you actually care about with these characters, all these animals got great personality and it about working in a team with different people, it is definitely a family viewing with a lot of delicious food.

3.Eat Prey Love

Liz Gilbert have a spiral downward because her husband cheat on her and she is completely lost and don’t know what to do, she decided to travel around the world to find herself on a self-discovery.

After the disastrous food storm in the first film, Flint and his friends are forced to leave the town.

The reason why I put this film first it has all the elements of a classic film that simply warm, witty, funny, smart and inventive at the same time. It actually about a person who chasing his dream and it come true, it ring true to me with great and memorable funny moments, it will be a future classic to all people.

One thought on “Article: Top 10 Food Inspired Films

  1. Not a genre that I have thought about before. Two films come to mind as good examples though:
    Tampopo
    Sideways – a tour of Californian vineyards.
    The other example that comes to mind when thinking of food related cinema is the classic scene from Public Enemy when James Cagney shoves a grapefruit into a woman’s face. Not very pc but memorable.
