At Nowness.com, take a look at the quirky short entitled "Mr. Chow: Preparations" by German filmmaker Norbert Schoerner. A model gets dressed in a hotel room while watching a video of a Chinese chef making hand-pulled noodles at Mr. Chow in London. The noodle-maker's movements are mesmerizing -- and somehow comforting. As he tosses and pulls his rope of dough, slapping it on the counter or sweeping it through flour, the strands multiply and multiply. A real magic show.

It was filmed at the original Mr. Chow, which opened way back in 1968 and celebrated its 45th birthday on Valentine's Day.

Watch the short online here. Be forewarned: It might induce a craving for noodles, which can be had at Mr. Chow Beverly Hills, which opened in 1974.
