In-House Review - Sep 24 2007
Spanish director Ventura Pons' first English-language film is this faithful adaptation of David Leavitt's "The Page Turner," a sensual and highly literate drama of a young gay pianist, his overbearing mother and his tempestuous first love. In this fi... Read More

Food of Love was interesting because of the storyline it offers. Of course it would be easy to say it could have been written this way or acted that way and it would have all turned out better, but that is too superficial. This is a good offering o... Read More

"Food of Love"
It Could Have Been So Good
Amos Lassen
I really dislike films that have great potential and they because of some unknown reason fall flat. Not that "Food of Love" fell flat but it could have been so much better.

At first, it was hard for me to follow this movie. As I watch it, I have fallen into it. It is good but not great. It is something I will only watch once.

I can't understand why a love story of this caliber isn't publicized more. I also can't understand why the price is so low. I have just finished watching this DVD and the haunting feeling of a first love story really hit me between the eyes.

This movie is a fairly well acted film. The plot is not one to tax anybody's brains. This movie is a semi sweet morsel that could have been a bit better

Review by yawnmower

With Barcelona, Brahms, and a great score as background, the stage is beautifully set for a story that, no matter how hard it tries, does not measure up to its promise. Almost all the leads are British actors playing Americans directed by a Spaniard... Read More

I'm a big fan of author David Leavitt-whose book "The Page Turner" was the basis for this film; though "The Page Turner" is not my favorite of Leavitt's novels. The adaptation is fairly faithful. There's the relatively minor change of part of the s... Read More
