The first Japanese noodle western!

Zen and the Art of Noodle making meets the seven samurai- indescribable, wildy funny and totally wonderful.

Made in 1985, but not releases in the US until 1987, Tampopo was perhaps the first real foodie movie, before Babette’s Feast (1987) and before Like Water for Chocolate.

A truck driver stops at a small family-run noodle shop and decides to help its fledgling business. The story is intertwined with various vignettes about the relationship of love and food.
In this humorous paean to the joys of food, the main story is about trucker Goro, who rides into town like a modern Shane to help Tampopo set up the perfect noodle soup restaurant. Woven into this main story are a number of smaller stories about the importance of food, ranging from a gangster who mixes hot sex with food, to an old woman who terrorizes a shopkeeper by compulsively squeezing his wares.
