Described as the first "ramen western", Juzo Itami's wild and episodic film follows a deadpan trucker who rides into town offering to reinvigorate a maiden's noodle-bar menu. Itami also presents several hilarious side-dish skits on issues like the etiquette of spaghetti-eating and a scene of gastronomic erotica to make 9 1/2 Weeks blush.

Screening introduced by film writer and curator, Jasper Sharp.
