October 21, 2011: Movie Night with Wine and Cheese Reception

The Canada Japan Society (CJS) invites its members and friends to a night of great film, wine and cheese! We are into our seventh season of showing Japanese films at the National Film Board of Canada and are proud to present, as our October film, director Tetsuya Nakashima’s (Kamikaze Girls, Memories of Matsuko) acclaimed movie“CONFESSIONS” (2010).

The film stars Takako Matsu as a teacher telling her pupils that she is leaving. She then begins a long tale revolving around her life and the tragic death that haunts her, which leads to serious repercussions for some of the pupils...

This dark and often disturbing drama was selected as Japan’s official entry in the Best Foreign Language Film category for the Oscars in 2010.
