this looks like the buffet of food from Spirited Away, where I don’t know what ANY of it is, but it looks AMAZING

holds back tears*

Food porn.

about 99% sure that this is from the movie Eat Drink Man Woman and it pisses me off that people have no idea what it is, where it’s from, and just immediately equate it with an anime thing.

Because oh look it’s actually traditional CHINESE cooking. 

Look.

This was Ang Lee’s first real big hit—and it’s an amazing movie and these shots were so hard to film that they had to literally hire FUCKING STUNT CHEFS TO DO THE ACTION SHOTS OK. (warning: he kills a fish and a chicken in these shots).

The first shot is making dumplings in a quick and amazing way which takes YEARS of practice to do.

The next couple of shots are of steamed white chicken which is one of those staple, simple foods in Chinese cuisine that is really REALLY hard to perfect. Like it’s one of those things that sounds simple but is rarely ever perfect. 

The next is smoked pork belly and bok choy.

I could go on and on and on but like I’m just really pissed off that people are reblogging this like “OMFG REAL LIFE SPIRITED AWAY.”

Fuck you, it’s Ang Lee’s amazing fucking movie, Eat Drink Man Woman, which is all about sisters and daughters and food and family and basically no, it’s not fucking anime, it’s fucking Chinese culture in a nutshell.

being a person who relies heavily on physical affection while also being a person who does not get very much physical affection is a lil exhausting and saddening
