August film "Happy Flight"
(Director: Shinobu Yaguchi, 2008, 103min. Rating:PG, Cast:Haruka Ayase, Saburo Tokito, Seiichi Tanabe )

Japan’s Box-Office Comedy Hit from the director of “ Waterboys” & “Swing Girls” !

Shinobu Yaguchi brought feelings of laughter, tears, and exhilaration to audiences in Japan with his films (“Water boys “ and “Swing Girls”). The theme of this film is “airplanes” of all things!

Usually, films featuring airplanes tend to be panic films or focus on just the pilots and flight attendants. But Yaguchi’s intent was to create a more realistic, completely new film that oversees all corners of the aviation industry.

The experience of seeing this film is fun and exciting, just like actually riding on a jumbo jet. A wonderfully entertaining film about the aviation industry chock-full of Shinobu Yaguchi’s love and fascination towards airplanes has been born!

Presented by the Consulate-General of Japan in Auckland, the Japan Foundation, the University of Auckland, the University of Waikato.
