Tampopo

“DELIRIOUSLY, OBSCENELY PLEASURABLE!” – New York Magazine

Juzo Itami’s rapturous “ramen western” returns to U.S. screens for the first time in decades, in a new 4K restoration.

The tale of an enigmatic band of ramen ronin who guide the widow of a noodle shop owner on her quest for the perfect recipe, Tampopo serves up a savory broth of culinary adventure seasoned with offbeat comedy sketches and the erotic exploits of a gastronome gangster.

Sweet, sexy, surreal, and mouthwatering, Tampopo remains one of the most delectable examples of food on film.

"A biting satire of Japanese culture and its uneasy incorporation of Western influences."

Serena Donadoni, Village Voice

"Tampopo is, among many other things, the first "spaghetti eastern" and one of its particular charms is that it celebrates as much as satirizes. No movie gourmet with exotic tastes should miss it."

Desmond Ryan, Philadelphia Inquirer

"There are many love stories folded into this film's enjoyably meandering two hours, but "Tampopo" is above all about the romance of food, and the joyous, agonizing devotion and hard work required to tease out its manifold mysteries."

Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
