If you like noodles...
7 October 2018 | by bicancelSee all my reviews

Then do we have a movie for you!

A young lo mein noodle compelled to move to a soba noodle world learns to find the true noodle within.

A movie that beautifully touches on the value of family, true friendship, and hard work, while giving the viewer a glimpse into the life of someone on the fringes of society.

A noodle, once stir fried, can never be a simple plain noodle again, but it can still be delicious.
