Terracotta Distribution are delighted to announce the release of their insane Japanese action comedy, Tokyo Dragon Chef. Behind the camera is renowned director, Yoshihiro Nishimura, responsible for cult hits such as ‘Tokyo Gore Police’ and ‘Meatball Machine: Kodoku’ and the special FX director of Shin Godzilla.
Retired Yakuzas open a ramen restaurant and become an overnight sensation, thanks to their recipe developed in prison. But a mysterious upstart gang is taking down every Yakuza family one by one, drawing the chefs back into the gangland underworld once more!
Terracotta Distribution owner Joey Leung was thrilled that the film will be reaching UK audiences.”Everyone needs their spirits lifted at the moment and this blend of Yakuza rivalry, culinary success story and colourful musical are the much needed ingredients for a crazy, uplifting recipe that only the Japanese directors like Yoshihiro Nishimura can serve up. This is great find from us, it’s the film equivalent of crate digging for records and finding that gem you know people will just love, with a mix of older famous actors, young youtubers and pop idols.”
Tokyo Dragon Chef is a hilarious and bonkers infusion of Blues Brothers and Tampopo – martial arts, music and of course, ramen!
