Next Music from TOKYO Vol 11 concert – Oct 8 & 9 @ Le Divan Orange

Steven Tanaka is organizing a second tour of Next Music From Tokyo this year after a very successful vol 10 last May. Montrealers are in for a nice surprise this year because there will actually be two shows in Montreal although they won’t be exactly the same. The first will be on Sunday, October 8, 2017 at Le Divan Orange (4234 St. Laurent) in Montreal and the show starts at 8pm (doors 7pm) and will feature all the acts. There will be a second (mini) show on Monday, October 9, 2017 with only four of the acts but they will play longer sets and it will be followed by some sort of after party. The Montreal stop is after Toronto and before Vancouver. The lineup of six Japanese indie/underground bands are: Jyocho, Nuito, 午前3時と退屈 (Gozen Sanji To Taikutsu / 3 A.M. and Bored), O’ Summer Vacation & Koutei Camera Girl Drei + opening act: Ame To Kanmuri. Tickets are $14. Hard copy tickets can be purchased at Cheap Thrills or you can buy them online.

My Love Story!! – review [Recommended]

MyLoveStoryMy Love Story!! / 俺物語!! / Ore Monogatari!! (2015)
Directed by Hayato Kawai
Screenplay by Akiko Nogi
Starring Ryohei Suzuki, Mei Nagano, Kentarō Sakaguchi

Review: The main character Takeo (Ryohei Suzuki) is a teenager but looks like an older, burly man. People are often scared of him because of his looks but he’s actually a kind, helpful person. His best friend, Suna (Kentaro Sakaguchi), looks like a pretty boy and attracts a lot of girls including the ones that Takeo likes. No girls have ever liked Takeo but one day while walking with Suna he saves a girl named Rinko (Mei Nagano) from a harasser. When she thanks him he instantly falls for her. The next day she finds Takeo with Suna near their school. She wants to show her appreciation further by sharing a cake with them.

Fantasia 2017 festival in review

Fantasia 2017, total films seen: 22

This was an okay year overall. Last year wasn’t necessarily that much better but it had some super memorable screenings while this year there weren’t any films that wowed me or had the audience go super crazy. Granted, I missed some South Korean movies I really wanted to watch like A Taxi Driver and A Day. Only three films were labeled recommended this year. This isn’t the worst year as far as outright disliking films but the number of films that I enjoyed or liked a lot this year was lower than previous years. I am starting to wonder if my interest in East Asian cinema is waning.
