舟を編む"The Great Passage"

If you are turned off, because it's a Japanese film, I understand. Dictionary editing sounds like such a boring topic, but at the same time, it is a task that cannot be done without passion. The movie illustrates how people immerse themselves in such a micromanaged task and what it means to complete a task.
I watched a lot of Japanese movies, and I can tell you guys with confidence that this is the one that struck all thew right chord.
You won't regret it. Just give it a go.
