The Canada Japan Society, as part of our continuing Movie Nights at the National Film Board of Canada, is proud to present Takashi Miike’s 2006 controversial “Scars of the Sun”.

Starring Sho Aikawa, Scars of the Sun tells the tale of an everyday salaryman who decides to do a good deed
……and suffers terribly for it. He’s crucified by the media and abandoned by the both the police and justice system. What should he do?

This film shows director Miike at his best. It’s a very dark tale excellently told, taking incidents straight from Japanese headlines and combining them into a suspenseful criticism of parts of Japanese society. Aikawa shines as he plays a character against his regular casting, struggling with a very true moral dilemma. The movie is a very scary (though not horror) and at times disturbing take on revenge vs. forgiveness, resulting in a powerful film that you will surely not forget.

As usual, the screening will be followed by a post-party at Everest Caf醇P…a great place to casually meet new people from the CJS and talk a bit about the movie and the issues it ’s sure to raise. Also please come and hear about our “special” plans for our May Movie Night….
