RAILWAYS (2010) is another good opportunity for everyone to decide if the Japanese are a) just really total nerds who just loooove their railways and trains and trainmen, or b) if that is all part of a huge propaganda machine to give the Japanese public the reassurance that everything works perfectly fine as usual and life is in order.
RAILWAYS tells the story of Hajime Tsutsui who works for an electric company but decides to move back to his hometown to take care of his mother. There he starts working as a rail car driver. Responsible for this piece of brand-new nostalgia is Yoshinori Nishikiori, the cast includes Kiichi Nakai, Reiko Takashima, Yuika Motokariya, Tomoko Naraoka, Takahiro Miura, Matsunosuke Shofukutei and Masanori Ishii. Starts next week I believe.
