Film #13 off my Scavenger Hunt 53.
Task 15/31: Happy Birthday to Julia Child! Watch a movie about food.
It's been decades since my last viewing of Tampopo. I have my newly acquired Criterion Blu-ray to thank for this most excellent and delightful revisitation. That's what the film is -- an absolute delight. It's absurd and silly and fully infused with a deep love of food and all the many roles it can play in the wildly varying lives of its characters.
