At the beginning of this month, I announced that I would be hosting Food ‘n Flix with my chosen movie The Terminal. I love all the groups I am part of but I have to say there is a level of exchange with this group I just don’t get with others. Not only do we cook from a same inspiration, we also discuss the movies. It creates a real virtual conversation.
The Terminal stars Tom Hanks and Catherine Zeta-Jones. It is about a man named Viktor who becomes trapped in JFK International Airport terminal when he is denied entry into the United States as his status becomes ‘unacceptable’ when his native country has a revolution while he was traveling. The film is partially inspired by the 17-year stay (1988 to 2006) of Mehran Karimi Nasseri in the Charles de Gaulle International Airport Terminal I in Paris.
The film was enjoyed by all pretty. I think it is the 3rd time I see this movie and I love it every time. I cry every time Viktor finally understands what is happening to his country while he sees the torn country by a revolution in the lounge on CNN. He cannot leave the terminal while being (un)stamped as an unacceptable. He is denied entry as he does not technically belong to an existing country. For his troubles he is told not to leave the terminal while being handed meal vouchers and a phone card. When he asks what he is supposed to do while waiting he is told by the security escort:
“There’s only one thing you can do here, Mr. Navorski. Shop”

I love how you play with movies and food! I have to try your peanuts for sure, others looks great too!
Great round up-everything looks delicious and different too! Hehe we’ll be living the terminal tonight when we fly out of Rome for our 24 hours of air travel!
What a great lineup of foods! I was going to make cannelloni and got frustrated when my grocery store didn’t have the noodles. And then.. I forgot to figure out something else!
The Terminal is a wonderful movie. I love it. That eggplant dish sounds fabulous!
I’m so glad you picked this movie Evelyne–I can’t believe I never saw the whole thing before you chose it for F’N F. Thanks for hosting and what a great roundup–so many dishes and plenty of crackers for my soup. 😉 Can’t wait to stop by and see all the posts.
I watched the film twice and loved it every time I watched. A beautiful roundup, Evelyne.
G’day! What a great Round up and thanks so much for hosting Evelyne! Pinned, sharing and commenting on all today! Great pick!
Cheers! Joanne @ What’s On The List
Delicious collection of recipes and all inspired by the movie! I don’t know which one to choose!
This was a fantastic choice, and so much fun to watch again then see all of the inspired dishes! Thanks so much for being our hostess this month, Evelyne 🙂
I think I hit everybody and I am so impressed at how creative everyone is…makes my plain old cannelloni look very sad LOL> Can’t wait for next month. Thanks again for hosting Evelyne.
