"Bon Appetit." "Bon Appetit!"
"Let the feast begin."
These videos about food might make you hungry, but isn't it cool that films have the ability to do that?
"That didn't ... that didn't go very well."
The foods we see on screen can make our mouths water, inspire a sudden craving for a familiar dish, or even introduce audiences to new cuisines.
In a review of the 1994 Taiwanese film "Eat Drink Man Woman," prolific film critic Roger Ebert wrote: "Food is as much a backdrop as a recurring symbol."
"One of the deeply wonderful things about the film is how it portrays how comforting food is. 'Tampopo' is quite a sensory experience. You get the feeling of the soup, and the smell comes across."
This year, the Food Film Festival is paying tribute to a legend of the genre: Anthony Bourdain.
Months after the documentarian's death, the "Lower East Side" episode of "Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown" will premiere rather fittingly in the Lower East Side. The local restaurants Bourdain wanted to highlight are providing food for the screening.
