Co-presented with Slow Food Sacramento in honor of farm-to-fork month, Tampopo has been called “one of the best food movies of all time” by eater.com. An homage to ramen, Tampopo dishes out hilarity in a series of vignettes all loosely based around the plight of a small ramen shop. Produced in the style of a Spaghetti Western (or as it was dubbed early, “Ramen Western”), Tampopo received a 4-star review from Roger Ebert who called it a “tour de force” and “universally funny.”
(1985, 115 Minutes, NR; in Japanese with English subtitles)

Before the screening, at 5:30 PM, Chef Yasushi Ueyama will demonstrate the fine art of noodle-making and sake tasting as a first course to the film Tampopo. The owner of Sacramento Slow Food Snail of Approval restaurant Shoki Ramen, Yasushi approaches the humble noodle with a passion and creativity that will whet our appetites for the movie.

Join us for a trip around the globe as we present a sampling and behind-the-scenes discussions of some of the best foreign cinema. Provocative and educational, each screening will include an introduction by local film expert Jacob Greenberg, designed to offer a full understanding of the films individually and as part of the Crocker's curated series. By turns funny, surreal, poignant, and experimental, and all rarely presented on the big screen, these four cinematic gems are not to be missed. Members can purchase a «Film Passport» for the series and see all four films for the price of three.
