Film: 'Shall we Dance' in SJG

by aleks
The 4th and last film in our Japanese film pilot-series will be shown this coming Thursday. We originally scheduled it for 1:30, bur the SJG  closes at 4 pm that day and the movie is 2hrs - just enough time to screen the film and clean the room after ourselves...

Please note, that  we are moving the time of screening half an hour down -  to 1:00 pm, instead of 1:30, so there is enough time left for little socializing afterwords (we will have tea and snacks)

Thursday November 1, 2012 at 1:00 pm in Tateuchi Community Room:   'Shall We Dance?' ( ダンス? Sharu wi Dansu?), 1996, dir. Masayuki Suo. 

A successful but unhappy Japanese accountant finds the missing passion in his life when he begins to secretly take ballroom dance lessons.   120 minutes.

From wikipedia: At the Japanese Academy Awards it won 14 awards: Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography, Best Director, Best Editing, Best Film, Best Lighting, Best Music Score, Best Screenplay, Best Sound, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, and Newcomer of the Year (in short, every award it was eligible to win)

Hoping to see you there for a couple of hours of shared hilarity!
