The first to die in an epidemic of meningitis in Vera Cruz is a French tourist. His wife Nellie, detached and indifferent, feels little grief and realizes that her coldness is her own doom. Over the next two days, she is attracted to George, a local drunk who does odd jobs for brothels and dances grotesquely for tourists in exchange for drinks. George has his own dark secret, a tragedy he caused that leaves him with a death wish. In assisting the local doctor to cope with the epidemic, these two emotional cripples enable each other to rediscover reasons to live and to love.

But the food experience was impressive, made me hungry, and also eager to experience Japan and the many different foods they showed. I love Ramen, but to have it in Japan would be ideal! Great movie!

Chris N (gb) wrote: this is a movie that really gets killed in the fact that it triede to reach a wider audience by going pg-13, but would have definitely been a classic with some sexuality and more gore. The plot is actually really good, a lot of humour (whether incedental or planned) good music, decent creature effects, it is mostly lacking blood and a higher body count. The bloody octopus attacks a whole regatta...knocks down several ships and kills one? After the first crusty sailor kill I expected better. I love movies that start by introducing several characters to kill them off and this one was no exception. The ending is kind of odd, but cool non-the-less

I always found it really hard to get into this movie as a kid just because the dream/death scenes were so weird. the overall story's pretty bizarre too...the film's focus is on a really bland cat and all the human characters are either overlooked or underdeveloped. this is just one of those movies from childhood I can take or leave.
