Reviews

Frisch vom Freund verlassen, und ohne nähere Kenntnis der lokalen Sitten und Gebräuche (von Sprache ganz zu schweigen), irrt die Amerikanerin Abby durchs nächtliche Tokio und landet schließlich in einem kleinen, aber feinen Nudelrestaurant. Weil sie sonst nichts Besseres vor hat und überhaupt recht verzweifelt ist, dient sie sich dem grimmigen Ramen-Koch als neuer Lehrling an. Der staunt nicht schlecht über die verrückte Weiße, um sie dann tatsächlich unter seiner Fittiche zu nehmen. Doch Lehrjahre sind keine Damenjahre, schon gar nicht in Japan. Darsteller: Brittany Murphy, Tammy Blanchard, Toshiyuki Nishida Regisseur(e): Robert Allan Ackerman

By Marco Rossini TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This is a unique film that shows a different side of Japan, in a way like the original Japanese version of Shall We Dance? [DVD], but what makes this film even more special is that this is a Hollywood movie about the cultural side of Japan!

Obviously I'm not going to spoil the film by revealing the plot, so I'd like to concentrate on other things. If you have been to Japan and have experienced the ramen noodles, this film will make you smile all the way especially after the ramen restaurant appears. The experts know that this kind of slightly old and 'scummy' restaurants serve the best ramen! If you watched Tampopo [DVD], you must have seen how serious Japanese people are about ramen noodles, and that the whole thing about good ramen is discussed at a philosophical level!

My favourite part of this film is that the role of the Ramen Master is played by a brilliant brilliant actor, Toshiyuki Nishida. He is a VERY well-known and my favourite Japanese actor, but he hasn't been known outside Japan much, because this film is his first ever Hollywood movie appearance. His appearing in Hollywood scene was long overdue, but at last he has arrived!

Brittany Murphy is lovely, too, and through the process of learning how to make good ramen with her very tetchy Master (Nishida), she starts to see what is really important in her heart, and there is this wonderful moment of eye contact when these two stubborn guys who don't understand each other with language can exchange something in their hearts.

5.0 out of 5 stars underrated! 10 Mar 2010
Format:DVD
This is actually a very funny, quirky, original and underrated movie! It is a rom-com, but not your regular one, but instead it shows us a different perspective on the genre. Brittany Murphy is amazing as Abby, the young woman who goes to Japan to be with her boyfriend - who dumps her in a matter of minutes when she gets there. After crying for a while she decides to go and eat at a restauant near her apartment building and decides she wants to work there and become a Ramen cook. Easier said than done, it turns out.
A very sweet film with some really funny moments. Well worth the money!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Movie to devour! 1 April 2011
By Chloe S "Chick Lit Chloe" TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Abby has moved her life over to Tokyo to be with her boyfriend, but ends up stranded after he decides he doesn't want Abby tagging along with him anymore, and abandons her, leaving her in a strange country and unable to speak to language. Abby feels very alone, and wanders into a local Ramen shop where she meets the elderly owner who think she is completely barmy. After eating the Ramen, Abby is hooked and persuades the chef to teach her how to become a Ramen chef. Maezumi isn't sure he can teach an American girl one of Japan's best dishes, and is reluctant to give her a fair go. Abby wants to prove herself to him and works madly to show she can become a Ramen chef, but is it enough to win the blessing of the Master Chef so Abby can continue Maezumi's shop?

The film is completely set in Japan, and aside from Abby almost all of the characters are Japanese people. It has a real authenticity about it, it captures the less glitzy hi-tech side of Japan that we see on the news and online, and I really enjoyed the journey of this movie. Murphy is probably the only name that most people will realise but the actor who plays Chef Maezumi, Toshiyuki Nishida, is apparently quite well known in Japanese TV circles but he didn't really mean anything to me!

Murphy is brilliant to watch on-screen as Abby, and I think she gives an amazing performance. I've only previously seen her in more comedic roles, so to see her take on a more serious role was really good, and she was brilliant. Abby is a confused and lost soul, and Murphy puts across this in her expression and her manner, and she's very mesmerising. She isn't afraid to show a less glamourous side of herself in the film, and works so well with Nishida, despite the language barrier the pair's chemistry on-screen says a thousand words.

4.0 out of 5 stars ignore the dreadful cover 7 July 2012
By tallmanbaby TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This is not my usual sort of film, I watched it by chance.

Brittany Murphy plays an American adrift in Japan, and the film was clearly set in the real Japan, with real Japanese actors and much of the dialogue in Japanese. As a result it is constantly intriguing, but not exactly pacey. If you are patient it unfolds in a satisfying manner, never quite heading off into cliche or predictability.

The real strength is Brittany, who does well with a character who should be irritating, but actually manages to win you over without ever becoming trite or saccharine.

Having said all this, out of our family I was the only person who really liked the film, although everyone else was happy enough to stick with it. Probably a bit too real for teenage girls, this is only ever likely to appeal to a fairly niche audience, but if it is you cup of ramen, then it is entertaining and well put together.

I'm glad that this kind of film that shows an ordinary life of a working class Japanese man has been introduced in this way, because as far as I know Japan has a lot more than just gadgets, bullet trains, karaoke, ninja or samurai. Hope you'll enjoy it!
