January 21, TORTILLA SOUP, (2001) Critics call it "scrumptious," with a Latin-flavored score that enlivens the whole dish.  It's a tale of food and family set in Southern California.  Hector Elizondo plays the aging father, a retired chef who has lost his taste for life.  Nonetheless he prepares a bountiful, beautiful Mexican-American family meal every week for his three fractious daughters, each of whom challenges his patriarchal assumptions in a different way. On the surface, it's a warm human comedy.  But it's also spiced with cogent observations about aging, loneliness and ethnic identity.  Altogether, it's as comforting as, well, a bowl of tortilla soup.  Raquel Welsh (nee Jo Raquel Tejada) plays the father's love interest.  Director: Maria Ripoll 103 minutes.
