Summary, etc.:
An award-winning romance from Australia starring Golden Globe and Emmy winning actress, Toni Collette.. Sandy, a geologist, finds herself stuck on a field trip to the Pilbara desert with a Japanese man she finds inscrutable, annoying and decidedly arrogant. Hiromitsu's view of her is not much better. Things go from bad to worse when they become stranded in one of the most remote regions on earth. JAPANESE STORY is a journey of change and discovery for its two lead characters.. Winner of Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress and 5 other awards at the Australian Film Institute Awards. Nominated for Un Certain Regard Award at the Cannes Film Festival.. "A cross-cultural love story [and] a powerfully emotional experience thanks to a career-best performance by Toni Collette. Aided immensely by the sweep and beauty of...precisely framed widescreen camerawork and the sleek editing... of Jill Bilcock, [the film] succeeds in presenting a credible portrait of a woman whose attitude toward life is changed by her unexpected confrontation with powerfully conflicting emotions." - Variety
