COMPETITION: Win Japanese Film DVDs
We have two brand new Japanese DVDs from Third Window Films to give away to a lucky winner of our latest Japan Centre competition. These are two straight to DVD films and won’t be available to see at UK cinemas, so a great opportunity to see some fun Japanese films.
Quirky Guys and Gals
Quirky Guys and Gals ties together four stories of people searching for a spark in their lives. Lovers of Japanese film have seen quite a few omnibus efforts over the years, with 2008’s Tokyo standing out as a particularly bizarre and interesting example. Yet this film, drawing together some of Japan’s best comedic directors, tops even that three-part work.
Sawako has lived in Tokyo for five years, is working her fifth office job, and is dating her fifth boyfriend, who is also her boss at the office. Her life with Kenichi, her boyfriend, and his daughter from a previous marriage, Kayoko, feels like a compromise, and she endures each day feeling distressed about her career and love life. After heading back to her home town to take over her fathers business, she slowly starts to take charge of the situation and form a new life for herself.
