DOWNTOWN INDEPENDENT PRESENTS: “TAMPOPO” (1985)
May 13, 2018
Los Angeles / Downtown Independent
The tale of an eccentric band of culinary ronin (or wanderers) who guide the widow of a noodle-shop owner on her quest for the perfect recipe, this rapturous "ramen western" from Japanese director Juzo Itami is an entertaining, genre-bending adventure underpinned by a deft satire of the way social conventions distort the most natural of human urges — our appetites. "Tampopo" is a lavishly inclusive paean to the sensual joys of nourishment and one of the most mouthwatering examples of food on film ever made.
