1980s: Tanpopo (114 min., 1985)
Juzo Itami’s rapturous “ramen western” follows 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. This film will be screened in Japanese with English subtitles.
