How's It Going?

Fine, totally fine. That's the English title to 全然大丈夫 (Zenzen Daijobu), a charming 2008 film written & directed by Yosuke Fujita and starring comic YoshiYoshi Arakara and the delightful Yoshino Kimura which won the Audience Award at the 2008 New York Asian Film Festival and the Nippon Connection Grand Prize.

I saw it tonight as a fund-raiser for Japan with all proceeds going to JustGiving. Thanks to Yuko Shiomaki for putting it all together, Adam Torel of Third Window Films fame for securing the DVD and to the lads & lasses at jfilm powwow who also link to the Japan Society
for relief donations.

A very cute and touching movie which made me homesick for Nihon, laugh out loud and almost brought a tear to my eye.
