(1985) dir Jûzô Itami w/Tsutomu Yamazaki, Nobuko Miyamoto, Kôji Yakusho, Ken Watanabe [115 min; DCP]
Jûzô Itami’s rapturous “ramen western” is the tale of an enigmatic band of ramen ronin who guide the widow of a noodle shop owner on her quest for the perfect recipe, TAMPOPO serves up a savory broth of culinary adventure seasoned with offbeat comedy sketches and the erotic exploits of a gastronome gangster. Sweet, sexy, surreal, and mouthwatering, TAMPOPO remains one of the most delectable examples of food on film.

“Manages to short-circuit most of our senses at once.” — Los Angeles Times

“Outwardly preposterous. And everything works.” — The Philadelphia Inquirer

“There is no more ‘foodie’ a film, though it predates the term, anticipating a kind of insane fetishism that no longer seems that unlikely.” —Anthony Bourdain
