fear and trembling

Struggling with the type of identity crisis that happens to those freshly (or not so freshly) out of university, Amelie chooses to return to her childhood home of Japan. She gets a job at a Japanese conglomerate as a translator, but ends up, in this Office Space-ish dark comedy doing the most meaningless of tasks. Her only savior is her rich sense of duty, imagination, and need for belonging and friendship: however, these survival traits also become her undoing. At times tender, bizarre, moody, and funny, this film examination of cross cultural-shock in the working world is worth a look, especially if you think your job sucks. [france/japan, 2004]
