Imagine eating nothing but traditional, authentic Japanese cooking for 12 weeks. What sort of health benefits would this kind of diet have on one's body? In a dieting experiment similar to Supersize Me, but towards improving health, award-winning actor and comedian Craig Anderson does just this. Through a series of entertaining and educational scenarios filled with culinary secrets and cultural chaos, Craig investigates how the traditional Japanese diet, along with their active lifestyles, results in the Japanese population being the healthiest and longest living people on the planet. Miso Hungry is a light-hearted documentary about one man's journey to find a simple, painless path towards a healthier life.Written by
Absolutely OK as a documentary and as someone who needs to drop a few, I was really interested to see the results; which frankly are pretty obvious and predictable. My main gripe is that this guy, who I don't know, presents himself at the beginning as a comedy/ actor/ creator, so you think you're in for a fun, if educational ride, however, he has a really flat, dull delivery and the fun is pretty much non existent. I'm inspired to eat better as I don't want to end up like this, but not inspired by this film I'm afraid.
