Tampopo

Tampopo

Strong candidate for feel-good cinema's best of the best... the fact that Tampopo's impetus is wholly concerned with sensory pleasure plays no small part. It looks good, it sounds good (the giddy delight of hearing slurping noodles is woefully underrated in western culture), and if celluloid were edible, I'm convinced this film, above all others, would smell and taste good too.

Feel-good indeed.

I can see this becoming a litmus test of sorts.... if you don't enjoy this, we can't be friends.
