I found this movie confusing in that I couldn't uniquely identify the characters. Also, the movie seems to switch gears (first it seems to be comical, then it is serious, then it is comical) and it can't seem to make up its mind about what it wants to be.
I did like some of the characters, but the movie was confusing and FAR to long.
I enjoyed Tampopo immensly but this film was dissapointing considering it was made by the same director.
