I'm sure there have been discussions on this board about food movies in the past, but a recent experience has prompted me to visit the subject once again. I recently rented the movie "Tampopo", as it has been fifteen years since I saw it in the theaters. This has got to be the greatest food movie ever, and best exemplifies the Chowhound experience. I was surprised when I brought up the subject with my young friends in the restaurant business that they not only have never seen this movie, but have never even heard of it! So I must urge anyone with a passion for food who has not seen this film, or has not seen it in a long time to check it out...You will be amazed!
