The Rehoboth Beach Film Society, Lewes Public Library and Movies at Midway announce the first screening in its 2012-2013 monthly series of critically acclaimed, international independent films. The Around the World series will kick off with the award-winning Japanese comedy “Hospitalité” on Wednesday, September 5 at 7:00 pm in the upstairs screening room at Movies at Midway. Admission to this film series is free and open to the public.
Winner of the Best Independent Debut Award at the Tokyo International Film Festival, “Hospitalité” is a “gleeful farce,” according to “Variety” magazine, that creates “a marvelous tension between a prim comedy of manners and unbridled slapstick.”
The comic film follows Mikio Kobayashi, who lives quietly with his wife, daughter, and divorced sister in downtown Tokyo, where the only recent excitement is the disappearance of a pet parrot. But one day Kagawa appears, claiming to be the son of a financier who once helped Kobayashi’s company. In return for his family’s past help, Kagawa requests to move in, and Kobayashi’s quiet lifestyle is quickly forgotten when Kagawa invites his Brazilian (or is she Bosnian?) wife and a myriad of eclectic and foreign visitors to join him in the cramped apartment. The Kobayashis are comically tossed about in confusion as Kagawa and his associates run amuck in their home. Kagawa, with the help of his visitors, manages to reveal old secrets and stir up the monotony of Mikio’s former life with affairs, blackmail, and rampant youthful partying [2010, Japanese with English subtitles, Runtime: 95 min, Not rated].
