The film explores the interpersonal relationships that food nurtures. To eat is a universal experience and this documentary takes the audience on a journey throughout Japan looking at how life can be led richly through the daily ritual of eating.

Don't waste your time watching this self-indulgent oevre. It consists mostly of interviews of minor Japanese celebrities about their attitudes around food and doesn't reveal anything about eating that isn't self-evident. While there are two threads that add some meaningful content to this movie -- a visit to a Tokyo fish market revealing how the changing seasons affect the flavours of certain sea foods and how our changing oceans affect their availability, and an interview with a 90 year old Buddhist monk about the spirituality of eating -- these are never fully developed. This movie might also have been partially redeemed through the use of the intense and sensual cinematography promised by the colourful DVD front cover and the back description of the movie as "food pornography." However, I was bored stiff with its drab colours and compositions. You have to be incredibly stoned to get off on this movie.

FANTASTIC!!! One of the best most inspiring documentaries I've seen. Shows how we can have a much more meaningful life if we would just pay attention to what we eat and be present while eating. We can derive deep satisfaction from our food choices and become much more content and peaceful in life through this most pleasurable act. Everyone should see it...we would have a more connected population if that were so.
