With a title like that, I thought for sure we should expect another amazing hit in the Brick McBurly tradition. You can imagine my surprise to not see his name in the cast... this seems right up his alley, after all.

PS For those not in the know, "oppai", while sounding coincidentally like a Greek toast exclamation, is one of several Japanese words for boobs. So, Breasts Valley. Sounds like a nice, tame, family-fun sort of film, yeah?

It's actually "Oppai Volley" as in Volleyball - as in the coachlady promises to show the team her oppai if they win, because she figures they don't have a chance in hell of it, and hilarity ensues.

Ah, okay. I guess I just misread it. Either way, looks like fun.

And if I may add, it is a mainsteam comedy that played in normal theaters and even ANA was showing it in the main cabin on personal entertainment systems on international flights. So this isn't really a Brick kind of film.

Tht doesn't mean that I watched it, though. I opted to watch a very cool movie about mountain climbers in Meiji period Japan instead. Cool

Yes, I know. I was referring to the title. Generally, when I see something like "Boobs Volley" or "Breasts Valley" in a movie title, I imagine a certain type of thing...

I guess the same can't be said of everyone. Rolling Eyes

I dunno what to say. Perhaps you've been exposed to too much hentai anime... Just Kidding

Was this Tsurugidake ten no ki? (I can't remember what the English title was.) I saw that too, it is very cool. There is an interesting article on Japanese mountain climbing in Japan Focus this week

Yup, that was indeed the movie and the international name of the film is the very banal Mt Tsurugidake. Asano Tadanobu and Kagawa Teruyuki (who played Hdeyoshi in the Toshiie and Matsu NHK taiga drama)gave excellent performances however the best performance was by Mother Nature herself. The landscape shots were stunning. For those of you who are tired of cheesy and sleazy chanbara, give this film a try although the pace may be too slow for some of you action geeks. Laughing

I'm disappointed in alla ya. If you'd all had been religiously readin' the McBurly Monogatari (like ya should), you'd already know that the Brickster WAS in it. Check out the April 27th edition of the Monogatari. It's even listed in the Brickster's filmography on SA Wikipedia and his own site.

Kagawa Teruyuki is an awesome guy, just the nicest guy in the world. I've got pictures with him somewhere on a computer back in the real world. Pictures with good ol' Nishida Toshiyuki as well. Mokkun, on the other hand, is a prima donna d*ck.
