Schedule of Japanese Eiga Sai Filmfest 2012 at Shangrila

 The 2012 Eiga Sai (Japanese Film Festival) is set to happen on July 6-15 at the Shangrila Plaza Mall in Edsa, Mandaluyong City.
Admission is free but the seats are limited. Movie goers are advised to be at the cinema at least 30 minutes before the movie schedule because they give out tickets around that time. There is usually a long line so it pays to be early.
The complete lineup:
Villain. Fukatsu Eri plays sales clerk Mitsuyo, a woman on the run with a murderer.
PEAK: The Rescuers. An adventure film and drama based on the popular comics by Ishizuka Shinichi, following the story of Sanpo, who volunteers as a mountain rescuer in the Northern Alps after having conquered the world's famous peaks.
Railways. Businessman Hajime, who is in line to be the head of a prominent electronics company, instead returns home after his mother falls ill and his best friend is killed in an accident. There he revisits his childhood dream of becoming a train conductor.
Happy Flight. Set onboard Flight No. 1980 bound for Honolulu from Japan, which is forced to head back to Japan due to technical failures and must be landed in the face of an approaching typhoon.
Tomorrow's Joe. An exciting live adaptation of Takamori Asao and Chiba Tetsuya's eponymous comic, regarded as a brilliant feat in Manga history. The story revolves around two boxing rivals—a recruit from the slums and a professional fighter—who engage in a fierce battle that will determine both their fates.
In His Chart. A medical drama based on the debut novel of Natsukawa Sosuke. An eye-opening glimpse into Japan's healthcare issues in its provinces, the film follows the growth of young doctor Ichito, who encounters terminal cancer patient Azumi and questions the very existence of medicine.
Colorful. An animated sci-fi and fantasy film showing what happens to a deceased soul that was transferred into the body of high school boy Kobayashi Makoto, who just committed suicide. With Kobayashi's body regaining life, the soul inhabits him and journeys deeper into the boy's story, eventually uncovering the truth behind the suicide.
Abacus and Sword. A family drama and film adaptation of Isoda Michifumi's book chronicling life in the final days of the Tokugawa shogunate from the household accounts of a low-ranking samurai.
Ninja Kids. A live action adaptation of Amako Soubei's well-loved ninja action manga, following the comical slapstick antics of a group of boys who are elite ninjas-in-training. In this film, the spotlight is on Ninja Academy first grader Rantaro and friends and fellow students Shinbee and Kirimaru as they commit constant blunders in school.
Permanent Nobara. A love story for grown-ups based on the popular manga series of the same title by Saibara Rieko. Naoko returns home with her young daughter, where her mother runs a beauty parlor and local women go there to lament their bad luck with men and laugh over dirty jokes. However, unbeknownst to them, Naoko has been secretly seeing her former teacher Kashima.
