An Analysis of Tortilla Soup Tortilla Soup is a film that does more than give the viewer a good feeling. Tortilla Soup is a film with many uplifting qualities that the viewer can relate. The opening scene draws the viewer in as the main protagonists, Martin Naranjo played by Hector Elizondo, prepares a large meal with many different dishes for his family. The way that Naranjo manipulates the kitchen cutlery demonstrates that he is more than a cook. His skill demonstrates that he is a fine chef. The opening scene of Naranjo preparing the meal is very relaxing to watch his culinary skills at work. It was interesting that one of the dishes was a melon blossom soup. The author had never heard of or observed this dish being served, so it required some investigation. Tortilla Soup is an enjoyable film that introduces romance and comedy during the preparation and sharing of a special meal.

This was a great article to read. It made me want to get and find his restaurant and just one of the soup that he makes. Some of the idea that I received thru out this reading is that I really need to make sure that my food is clean. The reason for that is so that I can have some of the best tasting food that I can make. One thing that was very interesting is how he would go to other restaurants and say that he couldn’t eat the soup.

What do you think of when you hear pre-1950’s music? Do think of Frank Sinatra? Ella Fitzgerald? T-Bone Walker? Well a thing all three of them have in common is that they influenced and were influenced by the culture at the time.
