A must see
30 April 2007 | by (Varna, Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed that film. Maybe I am under family influence, because my wife was born in Japan Kagawa prefecture, where this film were made, but I think it is a film that describes perfectly the life in a small Japanese rural area and how passionate Japanese are for food subjects. I saw in "Udon" many influences from Juzo Itami's "Tampopo", another food comedy, that proves that Itami is an undervalued director by both critics and audience and his influence will be seen in 21st century film makers. Despite it is a long time, you never find boring scenes and the action is intense and attractive, so you always find interests to watch the film. I'm sure that "Udon" will be one of the films that will "survive" and will still talk about it in the next decades.
