"Please be my teacher! Meeting you makes me want to be a real noodle cook." Director Juzo Itami's culinary comedy Tampopo proved to be an important movie for the Japanese due to the way it introduced Western movie-goers to contemporary Japan and its agreeable sense of humour. Up until the 1987 American release of Tampopo, Westerners generally thought of Japanese cinema in terms of samurai pictures... read more

"23.06. PC/TV, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Juzo Itami A quirky, comedic "ramen western" spiced with some fun food-related vignettes. I actually found these vignettes, with their goofball punchlines, more enjoyable than the actual plot, but it's all good. Makes you hungry, too. "

"12/27/16 Directed by: Juzo Itami The main plot and characters are all really cute, fun and endearing and undeniably great but the real magic is in the little cut-away stories that pop up here and there. This is a very special film. "
