Tampopo, Jûzô Itami’s first and only ramen western, is a joyous, kaleidoscopic journey of culinary celebration.

When truckers Gun (Ken Watanabe) and Gorō (Tsutomu Yamazaki) are caught in a storm, they take shelter in a unkempt ramen house run by Tampopo (Nobuko Miyamoto). As it becomes clear that her business is floundering, the trio go on a search for the perfect ramen recipe. Frequently interrupted by a wild array of subplots, vignettes, and allusions, Tampopo whimsically brings the foodie film to a whole new level, showcasing the inseparable relationship between food and life itself.

Before the show we will be raffling off a couple of $20 gift cards to Ganko Ittetsu Ramen in Brookline, so be sure to bring your appetite!
