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.
