Carlo Carlo’s review published on Letterboxd:
Tampopo is great, but this is even better for my money. Just that pairing of Nobuko Miyamoto and Masahiko Tsugawa is pure cinema magic, never mind the fact it's an immensely vibrant, human, and infectiously funny movie. Nobuko Miyamoto's wardrobe here is off the handle. Most of the time she looks like a 12-year old boy wearing her parents' clothes but her parents in this case are Marge Simpson & Ned Flanders.
