I saw this yesterday — one of the best films I’ve honestly seen in as long as I can remember. It’s a perfect tragicomedy for our times. It’s about a couple of Japanese businessmen who lose their jobs to outsourcing, and the chaos — sometimes devastating but usually sadly hilarious — that ensues. But don’t worry if you hate dark comedies — it ends on a beautiful note — literally.

If it’s playing anywhere near you (and it’s one of those small arthouse films, so unfortunately, it may not be), definitely do not miss it!
