    舟を編む"The Great Passage"

    Majime (Ryuhei Matsuda) has a talent to comprehend different languages and holds different views than others. He is the most important member of a dictionary edit team. Other word enthusiasts gather at the dictionary edit section for a publishing company. Majime finds himself struggling with the word "sea". Meanwhile, Majime attempts to tell Kaguya Hayashi (Aoi Miyazaki) how he feels about her. Kaguya Hayashi is a cook and the granddaughter of the owner of his boarding home.

    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.
