June 10, 2011: Movie Night - Chef of the Antarctic 南極料理人

The Canada Japan Society continues its monthly screenings of Japanese films at the National Film Board of Canada this June with the acclaimed, quirky, appetite inducing comedy Chef of the Antarctic.

Again, what better way to cool off than a comedy/drama based on the real life experiences of a chef sent to one of the most inhospitable places in the world; the chilling snow and ice of Antarctica! The film tells the tale of a group of researchers stationed there for a year. Isolated, bored and freezing, their bonding revolves around luxurious meals cooked for them by a chef resolved to survive by using his skills to the best of his abilities.

Subtle hilarity ensues!

As always, we will also have our post party get together at Everest after the film; it’s a great time to meet new people and practice your English or Japanese talking about the film. We hope to see you there!

The Everest is at 224 Queen St. West, near McCaul, and only a short walk from the NFB.
