I Love Non Sequiturs

For a very long and complicated series of reasons, I ended up watching "Like Water for Chocolate" for the first time last night. And it was...not what I expected.

I read the book and had this thought watching the movie: they never explain what the title phrase means.

What do people who have never read the book think that the title refers to? How does that color your view of the movie? And do you know that the world comes in colors other than brown?

I always assumed that it was about water for making hot chocolate, but I double-read it also as accepting something thin and tasteless (water) in exchange for chocolate, or instead of chocolate.

I haven't read the book.

I have never read the book and have no idea what the title phrase means. I assumed it had to do with one of the recipes...

I read the book before seeing the movie, but I saw the movie right after it was available on video, so I don't even remember if I noticed that the title wasn't explained. Mostly what I remember is that I could only get ahold of the dubbed version, and the dubbing was awful and just completely spoiled the movie for me.
