IMG_3566Dir: Juzo Itami | 114min | Drama | Japan

TAMPOPO celebrates the joy of eating and sensual nourishment with an offbeat and amusingly sensuous clutch of ramen-Western style foodie vignettes that showcase the art of cuisine and how close it is to the art of carnal delight. Juzo Itami lovingly links these stories together with inspiration and a generous dollop of fun: a slow-cooked lesson in how to celebrate pork knoodles; a hint at how to spice up your love life and an inspired idea about the role of yam sausages in your final hours. A watchable and inventive cult classic and one of the most entertaining foodie films ever made. MT
