East Meets West, and Gets Confused

You don't need any translation to enjoy this scene from the Japanese movie Tampopo. Here is a cross-cultural misunderstanding over the proper way to eat spaghetti. We begin with a very proper instructor in etiquette with her class of aspiring young ladies.

Oh, I love this movie! Especially the old man teaching the young one to "Caress the pork!"

There are so many scenes in this movie that make me howl with laughter; 2 solid hours of first rate food jokes.
