DVD: Shall we dansu?
I’ve seen bits of the Richard Gere version on TV, but this is the Japanese version from years earlier. A man who has resigned himself to an unhappy life finds unexpected joy in life by learning how to dance. There’s a cast of quirky characters to keep you laughing, and enough character backstory to keep you thinking.
Give it half an hour or so to get into it, and then sit back to enjoy the journey of the common, cross-cultural human experience.
