Juzo Itami
Tampopo
1986

Director Juzo Itami's stature among Japanese filmmakers is second only to Akira Kurosawa's. Itami's breakout film, Tampopo follows a cowboy trucker, a restaurant hostess, and their quest to create the ultimate ramen house. Billed as a "noodle Western," this comedy succeeds on the power of free-flowing satire and relentless charm.
