When I saw the movie, Ramen Girl, I became obsessed for about 6 months with the whole idea of ramen. I spent days at a time trying to make what I thought was the perfect broth. Which, given the fact I'm vegetarian, is not a simple thing at all.
I still have not managed to.
I'm writing this now, because I'm reading a book about how one man changed his life around because of ramen noodles. And it got me thinking about my own obsession few years ago, all because of a movie about a girl and a ramen noodle chef.
Many people, and many times in our lives, we forget the connection food has to our emotions, our souls. The movie The Ramen Girl, is a reminder of that.
I'm still on my ramen journey, but I would not have started it if it hadn't of been for the small film starring the late Brittany Murphy. I might add, this is the only one of her films I actually enjoyed.
