November 26th, 2010 - The CJS Movie Night for November is "BAYSIDE SHAKEDOWN; the Movie" 踊る大捜査線

For our November MOVIE NIGHT, The Canada Japan Society is proud to present the 1998 Blockbuster “Bayside Shakedown: the Movie”.

Based on the massive hit TV series Odoru Daisosasen the story and characters continue in this thrilling, funny and action packed look into life and politics in a big city police station. Three different stories are skilfully intertwined. First, the Tokyo police commissioner has been kidnapped and is being held for ransom. Second, a twisted killer uses an internet site to troll for victims. And, third, a thief is loose within the ranks of the police!

The star studded cast features Yûji Oda, Toshirô Yanagiba, Eri Fukatsu and a host of others as officers fighting for justice and yet caught within the bureaucracy and red tape of the Japanese police force.

Come on out for an evening of fun and enjoy the film that started the movie franchise, spawning two sequels and two more spinoffs!
