Ropetackle Film Club: Tampopo
The first Japanese “Noodle Western!” One of those utterly original movies that seems to exist in no known category.
Into Tampopo’s ramen bar trundles trucker Goro who offers to make her the finest noodle chef in Tokyo. This involves a Seven Samurai gathering of talents, military regimentation and industrial espionage.
Onto this loose structure, director Juzo Itami grafts a plethora of comic vignettes whose sole link is their focus on food. Universally funny.
Open to Film Club members and their guest (£6.00) only
Cert. 15 / 114 minutes / Japan / 1985
