Box! (ボックス!)

Back in December I went to see Box! during the Japanese Film Festival.

The film is about two childhood friends who reunite during High School and, as the name suggests, are part of the Amateur Boxing Club. It stars Kengo Kora as Yuki and Hayato Ichihara (Rookies) as Kabu. The film is directed by Toshio Lee, who you will probably remember from the cult hit Detroit Metal City. I really enjoyed it! 

And Melbourne peeps don't forget that this Saturday (tomorrow!)  is the Japanese Summer Festival or Natsu Matsuri! This year it is being held at the Waterfront City Piazza, Docklands and there will be lots of food and dancing - two of my favourite things! 

And lastly, Jetstar are currently having a 2 for 1 Sale! Get in quick, as the sale ends 2am (01:59 AEDT) this Tuesday 15 February 2011, unless sold out prior. Happy travels!

I saw this in Sydney as part of the festival! It was great. I am hoping to find it on DVD at some point :)
