Tampopo Review


Extraordinary
Talk about a spaghetti western! Tampopo is Juzo Itami's tongue-in-cheek version of an old-fashioned western, with hopeful (and amateur) restaurateur Tsutomu Yamazaki looking to create the perfect bowl of ramen for her customers. She finds help from a drifter in a cowboy hat, and her story is interrupted by bizarre -- and seemingly irrelevant -- subplots, like an old man who gorges on noodles and then chokes on a piece of meat; he is rescured via vacuum cleaner. Dizzyingly hilarious, Tampopo is the ultimate slurp-'em-up; probably the greatest (and least seen) comedy to ever come out of Japan.
