1h 30min · Documentary · 8 June 2013
Documentary taken over a few years, showing the life of a 70 year old ramen cook who had devoted his life to making the best ramen and teaching others to do the same. Every day, customers queued for 2 hours to eat his ramen. Age, osteoarthritis, varicose veins and weight gain impede his ability to continue to work. A heart-warming story of a man's devotion to his work and to his wife who died 20 years before and of the devotion of his apprentices to him.
