Tampopo

(Juzo Itami, 1985)

4K Restoration

Dubbed the first “ramen western,” Tampopo follows a struggling roadside noodle shop owner who is driven to make the perfect bowl of soup. Her game improves considerably with the encouragement and expertise of a trucker-cum-gourmet who stumbles into her shop one rainy evening. A surprise art-house hit, Tampopo remains an odd and hilarious celebration of two great sensual pleasures—food and sex. (115 mins., 4K DCP)

TAMPOPO RAMEN | 6 PM
