Thanks to cos for recommending Tampopo -- what a great film! But I must recommend that anyone planning to watch it: eat first, and keep food on hand! I think I'll be fighting my noodle craving for a week, too. Yum.
A few points: This movie made food that I don't even like look good! Fun with sex and food! Noodles, noodles, and more noodles. Also, behind all that, good, engaging, interesting story with dynamic characters.
