A gem of the Japanese cinema, the first Ramen Western in history, in a very literal sense. Goro is a modern cowboy who exchanged his horse for a truck and made it his mission to help the main character to make the perfect recipe for Chinese Noodles (which is not as easy as it sounds). The plot, composed of loose episodes, guides the audience through the culinary customs of the Japanese, meticulously portraying the importance of a good meal and the surrounding rituals. The surreal scenes and a gallery of grotesque characters make "Tampopo" hysterically funny, but be warned – this screening will make you positively hungry.
(1933-1997). Son of a filmmaker Mansaku Itami, he began his adventure with cinema as a film and TV actor, and moved on to become a director at the age of 50. He made 10 films – he wrote scripts himself and cast his wife Nobuko Miyamoto. Often compared to Jacques Tati. In his pictures he humorously commented on the changing Japanese customs.
