Japanese Movie Night are coming 2nd and 9th March!
Posted by: rmaeda | February 27, 2013 |
I am planning to show movies to students taking Japanese or interested in Japan on March 2nd and 9th from 6:30 to 9pm at Kaneko Auditorium.
What kind of the image of the Japanese do you have? You think that we are polite, quite or hard-working, right?
These movies will change the image you have of the Japanese so far especially of Japanese women and men.
I will show “ the Idiot” on March 2nd. This title in Japanese is Hakuchi (白痴) and it was directed by Akira Kurosawa in 1951.
This story is about a Japanese veteran, driven partially mad because of the war. He travels to the snowy island of Kameda where he soon enters in a love triangle with his best friend and a disgraced woman.
On March 9th I will show “Love strikes” or in Japanese, Moteki (モテキ).
This movie was released for the first time 2 years ago. It represents the behavior of the present young generation of Japanese people.
The movies I will show you are totally different. You will realize that Japanese love style changes a lot between the past and the present as you watch them.
Looking forward to see you all there.
