I Lost My Noodles Over This
I have been waiting for netflix to get Tampopo. I found it today and grabbed it. Loved it! I am so craving a big hot bowl of noodle soup, sex with Iron Chef Morimoto in a cowboy hat, and one raw egg yolk...and maybe some live shrimp dancing on my belly. If you haven't seen this movie, do yourself a favor and watch it with your partner...or with your Hitachi Magic Wand. Whatever. I thought Big Night was good, and it was, but for pure sexyfoodiness, this has it beat. It has 9 1/2 Weeks beat! Did I mention that it is funny too?
"How are my noodles?", Tampopo asks Goro, "well, they've got sincerity but they lack guts..they're bad." So..the quest takes off.
"How to eat a bowl of good noodle soup? Stare at it and smell it to show your appreciation, stroke it lightly with your chopsticks to show your appreciation..pick up the pork and gently slide it into the corner..promising you'll get back to it later".
English Subtitles (but you won't need em to enjoy the movie)
