Some memorable eating scenes in movies.
This scene from Groundhog Day is just made for a gif. Here's Phil Connors (Bill Murray) stuffing his face with a whole wedge of cake. Well, if you have to live the same day over and over again, you might as well have your cake and eat it too!
After having two bowls of noodles, the elderly man in Tampopo starts on his shiruko, a red bean dessert with sticky glutinous rice flour dumplings.
Eggs are an excellent breakfast food. But namby pamby scrambled whites will not do for Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone). You want the heavyweight title, you start the day with FIVE raw eggs.
Ratatouille is a traditional French stewed vegetable dish. The key ingredients are tomato, zucchini and eggplant. It can be made by simply sauteeing the vegetables – together or separately – or layering them in a casserole, like what the fearsome food critic Anton Ego is having here in Ratatouille. He is immediately transported back to his childhood and a happier time in his life.
Melanie Laurent (Shosanna) eats strudel with cream at a fancy restaurant in Inglorious Basterds. She seems indifferent to it, but the way she spreads that cream on the pastry is mouth-watering!
