June "Always Sunset on Third Street 3 "
(Director: Takashi Yamazaki, 2012, 142min. Rating:PG, Cast: Hidetaka Yoshitaka, Koyuki, Shinichi Tsutsumi )

Japan's good old days airbrushed to cartoonish perfection

The year is 1964. With Tokyo preparing to host the Olympics, buildings and highways are being constructed at a feverish pace, and excitement fills the air. Amidst all the change and commotion, the people of Third Street continue to carry on with their lives, as colorful and vibrant as ever.

The novelist Ryunosuke Chagawa has married Hiromi, and the two now share a happy life with Junnosuke, the young boy he had taken in during the first film, who is now in high school. Chagawa’s candy shop has been renovated to include a small restaurant, which Hiromi runs. Hiromi is also pregnant, and the family prepares to welcome a new addition to their household. One day, Hiromi discovers a telegram that Chagawa had hidden. Who sent this telegram? What is the surprising identity of this new rival writer? Will Mutsuko’s affections be returned? And what future awaits the people of Third Street?

Presented by the Consulate-General of Japan, The Japan Foundation, The University of Auckland, The University of Waikato, Massey University
