Tampopo ★★★★½

86/100(was a 68/100)

As a work of pure delight, few(if any) films surpass this. An absolute joy from start to finish — so beautifully caught up in what it is, which is everything sweet, funny, idiosyncratic, and hopeful. Extremely simple — just one woman making the best goddamn ramen in the whole world — which is why I love it so much, but still exceedingly its own film. Its sense of humor is its own, its style is its own, its rhythm is its own — everything seen here is wholly unique to this film which allows it to be so special and so delightful. Just like last time, I had a smile on my face the whole way through, and laughed at every joke it through my way; I can’t imagine a world where I don’t love every inch of this.
