2007, 110 min., 35 mm. Directed by Yosuke Fujita. With Yoshiyoshi Araki, Yoshino Kimura and Yoshinori Okada. U.S. Premiere.
Winner of the Grand Prize at the Nippon Connection Film Festival.
By day, Teruo works at his family’s used bookstore–by night, he works on creating the world’s scariest haunted house. When pretty but clumsy Akari begins working at the shop, both Teruo and his friend vow to capture her heart. Silly, jealous rivalry ensues in this hilarious, offbeat comedy.
