Description

Celebrate the prelude to summer with us by immersing yourself in our feel-good comedy film season!

From wacky time-travel to ancient Rome and a musical extravaganza set in feudal Japan, to a slapstick twist on the film noir genre of the 60’s – our annual Pre-Summer Explorers season aims to make you shake and cry with laughter while presenting the multi-faceted and unique sense of humour in Japanese cinema!

Directed by Yosuke Fujita, 2014, 110 min, English Subtitles
