Jûzô Itami Japonya, 1985

kinotopia's rating of the film Tampopo

When the distributors that be decide there's a cultural shortage they may dig up something from the past and rebrand it as a lost treasure. "Tampopo" has got a lot of high end promotion over the past several years as a more accessible version of the offbeat Japanese cinema that Seijun Suzuki popularized. It's not a bad movie, just way over-hyped. Decent intro to live action for American fans of Studio Ghibli.
