February Movie Night: Fear and Trembling

Ever wanted to work for a big Japanese company in Japan?

The Canada Japan Society is proud to present a screening of Alain Corneau's 2003 film "Fear and Trembling". The story follows a young Japanese born/ Belgian woman as she unsuccessfully tries to cope with the office politics in a large Japanese corporation. Both hilarious and moving, this French film is a cross between "The Office" TV series and "Lost in Translation".

February 15th @ 7:00 p.m.
NFB Theatre
150 John Street
Admission $8.00 ($5.00 for CJS members)

The film is in Japanese and French with English sub-titles.
There will also be a post-party following the showing at Everest Cafe.
