RAMEN HEADS documents 15 months in the lives of Japan’s top ramen masters and their legions of devoted fans. Focused primarily on Osamu Tomita, Japan’s reigning king of ramen, and his obsessive approach to creating the perfect soup and noodles and searching for the highest-quality ingredients, alongside profiles of five other notable ramen shops, each with its own philosophy and flavour. Mixing in a brief rundown of ramen's historical roots, the film gives viewers an in-depth look at the culture surrounding this unique and beguiling dish.

“An appetite-inducing look at the ultimate Japanese comfort food…” —Alissa Simon, Variety

“A good-looking debut that's as obsessive as it sounds, Koki Shigeno's RAMEN HEADS celebrates those for whom Japan's famous dish is anything but a simple bowl of noodles and broth.” —John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter
