Seeing this in my inbox made me so happy.

I first watched Tampopo in my "Introduction to Japanese Film" class at Cornell. Thought it was nothing short of brilliant. I love that the film wears many hats - whether a Western film, a food documentary, a romantic melodrama, martial arts film, etc.

A celebration of connectedness and consumption joins a celebration of the cinema in a ‘comedy of manners’ about Japanese society.
