The chef of the south polar - a great movie

Today I want to write about one of the best, funniest and touching movies I recently saw... and it's based on a true story. It's called "The chef of the south polar" and takes place in the antarctic, where Japanese researchers had to stay for one year. But the main-character of this story is the cook of the crew, who does not only do is "job" but who is really passionate about cooking.
I loved the characters, the way the story was told and that it was very true to Japanese daily life and thinking. If you want to understand more about Japanese mentality, way of life and cooking I really recommend you that movie. There is a version with English subtitles available.
Here is the official homepage for more information:


  1. Is there any chance you can tell me where to find the version with English subtitles? I have looked everywhere... :(

  2. I wish I could... I saw it on a flight with JAL and they had the subtitled version there... when I find out something about a subtitled version, I'll let you know.
