Mississippi Records Music & Film Series Presents TAMPOPO!

A classic and seldom seen 1985 Japanese "spaghetti western" about making the perfect bowl of Ramen. Sound strange? You bet!

The film follows Tampopo, a widow who runs a dilapidated Ramen shop. She meets a truck driver who decides to help her move past her "sincere but character lacking" noodles onto Ramen that can stand as great art. Their story is interspersed with other food related tales about everything from the art of ordering food at a French restaurant to the dead rising to cook meals to a woman who is obsessed with squeezing food to a gangster who explores erotic ways to use edibles. And there is even more too this sprawling narrative.

100% rating on Rotten tomatoes. Roger Ebert said, "Like the French comedies of Jacques Tati, it's a bemused meditation on human nature in which one humorous situation flows into another offhandedly, as if life were a series of smiles."

As if life were a series of smiles!

Featuring a free Cup-O-Umi Organic Ramen Noodles and Hapa PDX Broth !!!
