Food movie. Realistic.
8 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think the Japanese have a fine sense of the human nature. Tension and conflict abound within and between individuals and many of the important characters experience some form of personal growth.

A young boy is in complete conflict with his father as he has no intention to take over the family business, as is expected of him. After failing to make it in the big city, the boy returns to the small town. On a mission to locate all the Udon Shops in the area he finally comes to value Udon.

This is a real food movie. As soon as the action picks up there are many scenes of making and preparing Udon which include (appealing to our senses) close ups of prepared Udon.

Oishi !!!
