Very glad I ate a big bowl of ramen before watching this film at the Prince Charles Cinema. It’s a comedy centred around people's obsession with food – whether it be feeling up every piece of fruit in the shop, to wanting a final meal cooked by your dying wife. The hook on which the film is hung is the idea of finding a purpose, and trying to achieve it – in this case, creating the perfect ramen shop. The rest is just sketches, some quite Pythonesque, my favourite being the newlywed crime boss who likes to bring food into the bedroom, and the group of tramps who turn out to have a taste for fine dining.
