"No matter where you go, there you are."


Ex Yakuzas war over the best Ramen shop in Tokyo in the trailer for Tokyo Dragon Chef

Terracotta Distribution has announced 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.”

The film stars Yasukaze Motomiya (Outrage Coda, Graveyard Of Honor), Yoshiyuki Yamaguchi (Tokyo Tribe, Blade Of The Immortal), Hitoshi Ozawa (Violent Cop), Ozawa Kazuyoshi (Score), Tak Sakaguchi (Versus, Re:Born) and singers Rinne Yoshida, Michi and Yutaro.

Tokyo Dragon Chef is a hilarious and bonkers infusion of Blues Brothers and Tampopo – martial arts, music and of course, ramen!

Tokyo Dragon Chef will be on DVD & Digital Download from 25th January.
