Japanese Film Festival was inaugurated at the Japan Information and Culture Center (JICC). The Japanese Film Festival has been held annually in Karachi by the Consulate-General of Japan in Karachi and the Japan Foundation.
This year, four Japanese movies will be played including “Samurai Cat,” “Penguin High Way,” “a Story of Yonosuke,” “Mameshiba Cubbish Puppy” in two days at JICC.
In the inauguration ceremony, the audience has enjoyed the screening of 2014 Japanese comedy-drama “Neko Samurai”, which literally translates to “Samurai Cat”.
The film is based on a reserved, lone Ronin (master less samurai) named KYUTARO Madarame, who makes himself appeared in an idyllic Edo-period town, only to find himself caught in the middle of two warring clans.
Why are these clans fighting? Because one likes cats and the other likes dogs. Speaking at the inauguration ceremony, Deputy Consul-General of Japan in Karachi, Mr. ASHIDA Katsunori greeted guests, in particular, Japanese language course students.
Discussing basic theme of the movie ‘Neko Samurai,” he said that though the movie is billed as a comedy-drama, it is more comedic than dramatic and brings about amused chuckling to all the cats lovers.
