Seeing a Japanese film in Japan is certainly an easy thing, seeing one with English subtitles, not so much. Don’t miss your chance then to go see Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s Tokyo Sonata. My friend Marie organized that the film be shown at Cinemart in Roppongi with English subtitles for one week (December 13-19), with two shows daily (16:40 and 19:15). The film won the Jury Prize in the “Un Certain Regard” section of this year’s Cannes film festival. (Photo Â© 2008 Fortissimo Films/ TOKYO SONATA Film Partners)
Update: The screening with subs did so well that they have extended it until early January.
- December 20-26: one show at 19:15
- December 27 – January 2: 16:40 and 19:15 (two shows)
