Shall We Dance?

Shall We Dance? – Japan – 1996 – Comedy/Drama.   “Good-natured, lighthearted, and a look inside Japanese society to boot.”-Movie Habit.   A smash hit in Japan, it tells the warm, frequently funny story of  a middle-aged workaholic whose incredibly dull life takes a funny turn when he signs up for a ballroom dance class – just to  meet the sexy instructor.  But when he finally muscles up the nerve for lessons, he winds up with a different instructor and her colorfully eccentric class of beginners.  And now he’ll have to step lightly – and do some fancy footwork – if he expects to keep his new secret passion from his family and friends.  “Brilliant cast and a wonderful movie! Please be tactful and avoid the (ug) remake {Richare Gere, Susan Sarandon, Jennifer Lopez} until you’ve seen this.”-New Times.
