Wasabi is a 2001 French action-comedy film directed by Gérard Krawczyk and written and produced by Luc Besson. The film stars Jean Reno, Michel Muller and Ryōko Hirosue. In France, it was released as “Wasabi, la petite moutarde qui monte au nez” (“Wasabi, the little mustard that gets right up your nose”).
The film gets its title from a scene where the protagonist, Hubert Fiorentini (Jean Reno), eats a whole serving of wasabi at a Japanese restaurant without flinching.
Here’s the (really hilarious) clip. Enjoy!
