"You must contemplate the ramen".
The best movies make a profound connection with one or two aspects of the human experience. While there are many films that are about food, none compare to the comedic, delightful Tampopo.
The story of a widowed ramen shop owner and her quest for the perfect recipe is a picture of color, smiles, and charm.
Moreover, Tampopo from start to finish is about food. From one of the most memorable opening scenes in a film to the end, Tampopo connects the relationship we have with our food and on a deeper level, what food can mean to a family, a town, a society, and even a country.
Highly highly ask to give this charmer a chance.
