Our 2014 classes and films series are about to start!  from Jeanne P. email:

Japan film fans and comedy lovers, welcome to our first film of 2014 at the Japanese Garden. Bring a lunch, if you wish, and enjoy a film about food.  

You can find many plot summaries and reviews of "Tampopo" online, including this one from the Internet Movie Database (www.imdb.com)

"In this humorous paean to the joys of food, the main story is about trucker Goro, who rides into town like a modern Shane to help Tampopo set up the perfect noodle soup restaurant. Woven into this main story are a number of smaller stories about the importance of food, ranging from a gangster who mixes hot sex with food, to an old woman who terrorizes a shopkeeper by compulsively squeezing his wares."

Other reviews may be found on the Roger Ebert Web site: http://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/tampopo-1987. (He gave the film four stars.) You can also look at SJG Film Bank: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Pr7S1rs_RJOkacYabNfwJN7WGdjb9ETZzvTi_E7Hx0w/edit#heading=h.nxa0qotwrrkh.

We hope to see you at the movies!
