EXCELLENT JAPANESE ROMANCE AND DRAMA - A Tale of Samurai Cooking: A True Love Story review by GF

Spoiler Alert
16/12/2015

Lovely tale of a young woman, who is persuaded to marry into a family of Samurai chefs. She is a brilliant cook and starts to help her reluctant husband in the ways of cuisine, when he would actually rather be fighting with a sword.

There then follows some court skullduggery and a bit more drama until the final rom com scene. Beautifully fought with genuine characters, this is a splendid movie and you won't be disappointed.
