Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

Juzo Itami’s offbeat, outrageously sexy, long-unavailable “ramen western”.

The tale of an eccentric band of culinary ronin who guide the widow of a noodle shop owner on her quest for the perfect recipe, this rapturous “ramen western” by Japanese director JUZO ITAMI (A Taxing Woman) 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. Interspersing the efforts of Tampopo (NOBUKO MIYAMOTO) and friends to make her café a success with the erotic exploits of a gastronome gangster and glimpses of food culture both high and low, the sweet, sexy, and surreal Tampopo is a lavishly inclusive paean to the sensual joys of nourishment, and one of the most mouth-watering examples of food on film ever made.

Criterion

Artwork is so good for this. Great film as well

Great Movie

A fun classic! The quality of this blu-ray is excellent.

Ramen Western!

A wacky, hilarious and unforgettable comedy from Juzo Itami. The essential ramen Western!

Wow!

Can't believe I finally have this film on blu-ray (and from the people at Criterion, no less). A must for anyone who likes strange, quirky cinema, and most of all, ramen. Wonderful stuff!
