Movies about Food: Advice Needed
An academic colleague is looking for films that portray:
1) a Shabbat dinner
2) Dim Sum eating or cooking
3) Korean harvest festivals
4 Japanese tea ceremony
Can anybody help. I've recommended Wayne Wang's "Dim Sum" and "Eat a Bowl of Tea," though these are not food movies, if I remember correctly.
Thanks in advance for any help.
Japanese tea ceremony: Karate Kid 2, and perhaps Memoirs of a Geisha?
Dim Sum: Eat, Drink, Man, Woman
the Shabbat: Fiddler on the Roof (Sunrise, Sunset scene)
Chuck the Hollywood movies about the tea ceremony. Much blather, and that's a polite word for the distortions and total lack of understanding.
For the real deal, this Japanese movie about one of the greats is a must-see. "Rikyu", about a 16th century master. Directed by the headmaster of one of the premier ikebana schools.
Shabbat dinner...surely there was a scene in Yentl?
Definately Eat Drink Man Woman.
