Review
Sandy is a loud, abrupt, forthright geologist, used to being listened to and more than capable of handling herself in a man's world; Hiromitsu is a Japanese businessman and possible client, and when they find themselves, at his insistence, journeying deep into the Australian desert, Hiromitsu's disdain for his opinionated host becomes quickly apparent. As events unfold the pair's mutual dislike slowly transforms into a friendship, but an unforeseen event is about to shatter both Hiromitsu's and Sandy's world. Japanese Story sits happily as a comedy drama, based around cultural differences, for the first hour and then transforms into an intelligent and insightful study of guilt and grief. Well lauded by both critics and festivals. Well acted and watchable…..
