Julie & Julia

The movie jumps to different time periods, sharing both Julie and Julia's stories, all the while keeping a connection between them through food.

Tampopo is a classic Japanese comedy film with a basic plot of two milk-truck drivers helping a restaurant owner cook great noodles. But what makes this movie stands apart is it's fantastic writing which has extremely funny dialogues. Also, look out for some pretty crazy sexual food fetish scenes and fantastical elements as well.
