Synopsis:
Our Family
  • Ishii Yuya, whose “The Great Passage” was selected as Japan's entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 86th Academy Awards,directs this film adaptation of Hayami Kazumasa’s same-named novel.Depicts a struggling family who believe in miracles as the mother's impending death propels them toward dissolution. The Wakana family’s mother, Reiko (Harada Mieko), has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. Sons Kosuke (Tsumabuki Satoshi) and Shunpei (Ikematsu Sosuke) are bewildered when her high-interest debt and father Katsuaki (Nagatsuka Kyozo)’s hefty loans come to light. What is the unexpected miracle performed by this hopelessly struggling family?
Wood Job!
  • Coming-of-age story based on the best -selling novel “Kamusari naa naa Nichijo” by popular author Miura Shion. Director Yaguchi Shinobu, whose hit films include “Waterboys,” delivers a comedy replete with laughter and emotional drama. City-bred Hirano Yuki (Sometani Shota) decides on a whim to take up forestry work in the mountain village of Kamusari. Yuki nearly buckles under the tough work conditions, but he wakes up to the allure of nature and the locals, and gradually grows up
Thermae Romae II
  • Sequel to the spectacle-laden comedy Thermae Romae, a live action adaptation of Yamazaki Mari’s popular comic. Depicts the humor arising from the contrast in time and space between bathhouses in ancient Rome and contemporary Japan. The film is the first Japanese production shot on location in Bulgaria, and was realized on a grander scale than the first film. Roman Empire bathhouse architect Lucius (Abe Hiroshi) for some reason travels in time to contemporary Japan whenever he’s stuck for new ideas. Lucius, who was working on constructing a new bathhouse, finds himself wrapped up in a conflict that divides the Roman Empire.
Parasyte
  • : Always: Sunset on Third Street director Yamazaki Takashi uses lavish special effects in his live action adaptation of Iwaaki Hitoshi’s world-renowned SF manga. Thrilling and humor-laced depiction of the battle between humans and “parasytes” that take over and feed off human bodies. Humans are threatened with extinction due to mysterious “parasytes” that live off human bodies. When the right hand of high school student Shinichi (Sometani Shota) gets taken over, he nicknames the parasite “Righty” (voice: Abe Sadawo) and develops an unusual friendship.
Tada's Do-It-All House: Disconcerto
  • : Live action adaptation of Miura Shion’s Naoki Prize-winning series. This third work follows up on the first feature film in 2011 and TV drama in 2013 and gives an up-tempo depiction of a handyman duo. Direction and screenplay by Omori Tatsushi, who also handled the first film. Three years have passed since old pal Gyoten (Matsuda Ryohei) showed up at the feet of Tada (Eita), who runs a handyman shop in the outskirts of Tokyo. One day, Tada finds himself in a jam when Gyoten’s former wife puts her young daughter in his care. Plus, the local gangster organization pushes him to investigate a mysterious cultish group selling vegetables.
Princess Jellyfish
  • Live adaptation of Higashimura Akiko’s same-named comic, which has also been adapted as a TV animation. Unites hot creators for a unique portrayal of nerdy girls and a cross-dressing guy. Direction and screenplay by AKKO-CHAN: The Movie’s Kawamura Taisuke. Jellyfish geek Tsukimi (Nounen Rena) shares an apartment with other nerdy girls who each have their own obsession. One day, the girls are thrown into a tizzy by the appearance of beautiful cross-dresser Kuranosuke (Suda Masaki) and his brother Shu (Hasegawa Hiroki). Plus, the sacred space of the apartment is menaced by an attack…
It's a Beautiful Life
  • Tale of success for seniors, based on a true story. Three elderly women who are friends from childhood in a depopulated and greying mountainous area in Tokushima Prefecture start up a food garnish business. Interweaves profound human drama, including conflicts with family members, in the stories of hardship as they embark on their new enterprise. Eda (Hiraoka Yuta), who works for the local agricultural cooperative in a small town in Tokushima Prefecture, hatches the idea of selling roadside leaves and plants as garnish. However, the only person who supported his idea was Hanae (Fuji Sumiko), widow at a sundry goods shop.
A Tale of Samurai Cooking – A True Love Story
  • Funaki Dennai laid the foundations for Kaga clan cuisine in the Edo Period as a “kitchen samurai” who prepared food for the nobility. This heartwarming drama depicts the internal affairs of the Kaga clan from the perspective of a woman who marries Funaki’s son. It features meals made according to the Funaki family’s recipe collection “Ryori Mugonsho” and recreates the workings of samurai family kitchens at the time. Maid Haru (Ueto Aya) is a talented cook but stubborn, which leads her to divorce her husband after a year. However, she is asked by Kaga clan “kitchen samurai” Dennai (Nishida Toshiyuki) to marry his son and heir Yasunobu (Kora Kengo), and works to remedy his lack of culinary skills.
Patisserie Coin de rue
  • An emotional drama involving delicious desserts. A cake maker’s daughter from Kagoshima travels to Tokyo to find her boyfriend and take him back with her, but begins to look at herself in a new light when she meets a legendary former patissier. The numerous, colorful western-style confections delightfully sweeten the screen. Natsume (Aoi Yu) makes her way to a famous Tokyo patisserie to see her boyfriend, but is stunned to learn that he has quit. Left without a place to stay, she attempts to become a live-in employee at the patisserie, but the cakes she makes are given an emphatic thumbs-down by the owner Yoriko (Toda Keiko) and critic Tomura (Eguchi Yosuke)
The God of Ramen
  • Every day, people would queue for over two hours for a bowl of ramen at Taishoken. What’s the celebrated chef’s secret ingredient? There is no secret ingredient. In fact, as most Taishoken fans believe, it’s the charisma of owner Yamagishi Kazuo that attracted people from all around Japan to his modest shop. His personality and love for his craft, combined with a precise mélange of flavours, combined to create perfection in each ramen bowl. This heart-warming documentary is not just for noodle fans, but for anyone who loves to be inspired by passionate people.
Wa-shoku ~Beyond Sushi~
  • The Japanese and American collaboration documentary film, “WA-SHOKU ~Beyond Sushi~” produced by United Television Broadcasting Systems and directed by award winning director, Suzuki Junichi. Beginning with sushi, Japanese cuisine is familiar all over the world today. At Japanese restaurants, you can see people, regardless of their ethnicity, enjoying this food culture.
