COMPETITION: Win a set of Japanese Films on DVD
Japan Centre has teamed up with Third Window Films again, this time to give you guys a chance of winning a DVD with three superb films from contemporary Japanese Director Miki Satoshi.
This limited edition box set has been specially created to coincide with the UK release of his quirky comedy ‘Adrift in Tokyo’.
The ‘Miki Satoshi Collection’ set includes 3 of his hit best titles: ‘Turtles are Surprisingly Fast Swimmers’, ‘Instant Swamp’ and ‘Adrift in Tokyo’. All three are going straight to DVD and won’t be available to see at UK cinemas, so this is a great opportunity to see some fun Japanese films.
Adrift in Tokyo
Fumiya is a student with no friends or family, leading a lazy lifestyle. What’s more, debt collector Fukuhara is on his case. Fumiya owes 800,000 yen to loan sharks that he can’t repay. Fukuhara makes a proposition – he will cancel the debt if Fumiya walks with him across Tokyo to police headquarters in Kasumigaseki, where he intends to turn himself in for a crime he deeply regrets.
On first glance you might not think a story involving two men walking aimlessly on the streets of Tokyo was gripping stuff, but this subtle movie is a fascinating and humorous adventure that is sure to charm you. ‘Adrift in Tokyo‘ will be released on DVD in the UK on February 27th.
If you want to know more about the movie you can ask Miki Satoshi directly, when he and his regular collaborator, actress Fuse Eri will be appearing at the Hyper Japan event this weekend to talk about their work in contemporary Japanese cinema!
