-- "A bowl of ramen is a self-contained universe" --
Short, nice scene from the 2008 film 'The Ramen Girl', starring the late Brittany Murphy in a good role. Its about an American girl in Tokyo who decides she wants to learn how to make Ramen. In this clip, the ramen Master who she works for, tries to explain to her - quite deeply - what ramen is. He doesnt speak English. She doesnt speak Japanese. Got it? Its not up to the level of the brilliant TAMPOPO but if you like that film (and ramen) this is still worth a rental.

The scene starts at Tsukiji market in Tokyo where the ramen shop owner (Toshiyuki Nishida) and his new assistant (Murphy) are buying provisions. A rival ramen shop owner makes fun of him (and his female gaijin helper) Back at the restaurant, Nishida starts explaining to Murphy about the role the broth plays in a bowl of ramen, and for me, his little speech is the highlight of the film. Especially if you love ramen as I do.

Brittany Murphy gives a very cute, funny performance in this film. She was quite talented. She will be missed.
