Devouring Japan Food Film Festival: Screening of Tampopo, a film by Juzo Itami
Thu, November 21, 2013 • 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM • Mezes B0.306
Food, love, sex, and death spiced with a bit of comedy and tragedy
A zany Japanese Noodle Western about truck-driving cowboys and their encounter with a hapless widow whose ramen business is failing. Their new quest: to perfect the art of ramen-making and bring her business back. On this crazy path, they encounter food connoisseurs of all stripes: a gangster and his moll, a compulsive fruit-squeezer, a mother with death in her future, and many many more.
