My favorite part is when Goro Judo tossed the meat thief
11 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

This is now my favorite movie, it's, another movie made by the same director starring the same woman s "Tampopo" - which i also loved

My favorite part is when Goro Judo tossed the meat thief - brilliant- hilarious and it made me cheer even though i was by myself, i still did, i don't care

apparently Goro was on every team in college, i just finished watching it and I'm still laughing

the carchase was great too, i was thrilled , the car chase was more exciting than any car chase I've sen in action movies in recent memory.

the 'love' scene was hilarious and refreshing too, and somehow - while not immediately apparent Hanoko's energy and personality is sexy - well, maybe just to me

10 out of 10
