RAMEN CINEMA: TAMPOPO
With the release of Eric Khoo’s Ramen Shop, one of the most beloved Japanese cult movies of all time will return to our cinema. Join us for this timeless food-film, its sumptuous ramen meals (back on our menu!) and the beautiful Japanese culture it so charmingly depicts.
🍜 Don’t forget to book a Film & Dinner tickets and order the vegan miso ramen in our restaurant Strangelove (€14)!
The tale of an eccentric band of culinary ronin who guide the widow of a noodle-shop owner on her quest for the perfect recipe, this rapturous “ramen western” by Japanese director Juzo Itami is an entertaining, genre-bending adventure underpinned by a deft satire of the way social conventions distort the most natural of human urges—our appetites. Interspersing the efforts of Tampopo (Nobuko Miyamoto) and friends to make her café a success with the erotic exploits of a gastronome gangster and glimpses of food culture both high and low, the sweet, sexy, and surreal Tampopo is a lavishly inclusive paean to the sensual joys of nourishment, and one of the most mouthwatering examples of food on film ever made.
