STADTFRAUENKÜCHE & ZK/FU (Fact Finding Committee #04) screen Tampopo, a Japanese Ramen-Western directed by Jûzô Itami.
Would you pay one million Yen just to get your hands on the recipe of a really good Japanese noodle soup? Many valuable insights into the ABC of this culinary craft can be acquired for free from this ‘Ramen Western’: How to make noodles that are soft yet not too soft? Does one cook the broth (Tonkotsu) with or without a pig’s head? Are you allowed to slurp your food? Tampopo is the name of an ambitious woman who fetches five men to coach her. Behind her fluttering noren curtains she stands – giggling – and allows the men to turn her dark, rustic food stall into a shiny eighties boutique bistro with woodchip wallpaper.
Entrance to the film is free as usual. Food from 7.30 p.m., films from 8.30 p.m.
A meal costs €10. Please reserve your plate until the evening before by sending an email to speisekino(at)zku-berlin.org
