After HEARTY PAWS, K2 and of course HACHIKO movie versions now comes POLICE DOG DREAM: 18 year old Kyoko wants to become a police dog trainer. At the police dog training school she is supposed to take care of a puppy trainers consider too weak to become a police dog. Kyoko starts training Kinako though, and if any of you are surprised how this story ends, you’ll lose your god given right to watch movies for the rest of your lives. This true story (what else) is directed by Yoshinori Kobayashi and stars Kaho, Yasufumi Terawaki, Naho Toda, Yusuke Yamamoto, Kenichi Endo, Miyoko Asada, Mitsuru Hirata, Ryohei Hirota and Momoko Ona.

MADE IN JAPAN: A LONE SCALPEL [KOKUO NO MESU | 孤高のメス]

The Japanese never get bored of medical dramas, do they: this time it’s an adaptation of Toshihiko Oogane’s novel KOKOU NO MESU that has been given the international title A LONE SCALPEL.

Izuru Narushima’s movie tells the story of a doctor in the late 80’s who is supposed to perform an operation which at that time is prohibited by law. Something tells me that he will find a solution – starring Shinichi Tsutsumi, Yui Natsukawa, Akira Emoto, Kimiko Yo, Katsuhisa Namase, Yu Yoshizawa, Hiroki Narimiya and Mitsuru Hirata. Out in June.
