Food Movie: Tampopo

Juzo Itami’s film from 1985 is all about one woman’s quest to make perfect noodles. The obsessive journey is interspersed with all sorts of food scenes you can think of: in love, sex, death, awkward moments in the cinema, obsession with squishing things at the supermarket—you name it, Itami has it all beautifully presented visually.
