September film "Noriben"
(Director: Akira Ogata, 2009, 107min. Rating:PG, Cast:Manami Konishi, Yoshinori Okada, Jun Murakami )

Her life, Her recipe, a brand new start.

A heartfelt drama adapted from the comic of the same title by Irie Kiwa and directed by Ogata Akira that portrays the powerful struggle of a 31 year-old former housewife to open her own "bento" (boxed lunch) shop after returning to her childhood home with her young daughter.

Komaki is a thirty-something woman that has had it with her perpetually unemployed aspiring writer husband. Following the divorce, she moves back to her Tokyo-area hometown of Kyojima along with her young daughter, Non-chan. However, she has a difficult time making ends meet in big city Tokyo.

Her solution? Take a chance and try opening her very own bento (lunch box) shop.

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