CJS Movie Night Season Finale and Reception; "The Uchouten Hoteru"

The Canada Japan Society cordially invites you to the end of our fifth season of showing great Japanese movies at the National Film Board of Canada, in the hopes of bringing Canadian and Japanese cultures closer together.

For this event we are presenting the highly acclaimed ensemble comedy piece “The Uchouten Hoteru” by director Koki Mitani (Rajio no Jikan, the Magic Hour). This hilarious film tells the story of an off the wall New Years Eve at a famous hotel. It stars a huge cast of “who’s who” in Japan, including Koji Yakusho, Takako Matsu, Koichi Sato, and Ryoko Shinohara, amongst many more. The film was nominated for 11 Japanese academy awards in 2006 and helped solidify Koki Mitani as one of Japan’s most gifted writers and directors.

The Canada Japan Society also invites attendees to the post movie reception at the National Film Board. This wine and cheese party (of course there will be lots of other beverages and snacks as well) will be a great place to meet and talk with others about the film, practice your English or Japanese, learn more about the Canada Japan Society, and most importantly have fun on a Friday night! The reception is included in the ticket price.
