Foodie Flick: Tampopo
Tampopo, arguably the finest film by the late master director Juzo Itami, uses an unconventional story structure to celebrate, question, and marvel at all things gustatory. If you ever wanted to know how to make the perfect bowl of ramen, or what you should eat when you’re trapped in a yakuza shootout, Tampopo can help. It is also guaranteed to make you hungry.
