They obviously have too much free time on their hands. Storyline sounds crap!

Of course he wears glasses like that.

We’ll be on the the edge of our seats for this one. - Though, would be interesting to see what Miike Takashi, Yoshihiro Nishimura or even, Sion Sono would do here.

Wim Wenders and Koji Yakusho will keep the subject out of the gutter so, will this be a sequel to Japan’s 2021 Oscar-winner *Drive My Car ? - Some critics claimed that film was really a tedious stinker and three hours was much to long to sit in one place without a bathroom break. *

First impression was that it sounds very silly, however there was one point I changed my mind.

And so his film's hero will be a sanitation worker who cleans the toilets, seeing his job as a craft and a service for the people. Details of the script are still being worked out.

You know what, sure, why not? Sanitation workers are often kind of ignored by society at best, so giving them some credit where its due.

So, nach Der Himmel über Berlin und The End of the World kommen wir zum Toiletenwaschenkraft oder.

Which means something like, the zen of toilet cleaning latterly transcends Heaven and the end of the world.

I wanna watch!

Wim... buddy... what are you doing? You're not one of the angels in Die Himmer Uber Berlin giving up your wings to settle down on earth, my friend. You're going from Oscars to literal toilets. I pray it's just a gimmick to gain reputation in Japan.

There is an Australian film named "Kenny" which deals with this subject in hilarious fashion.

Koji needs to play once more larger than life tough character to become more recognisable worldwide. Not with this boring character it will help him.

Tablets are a great way to stream such movies @kurisupisu 6:35am but sitting in one place for too long is not good for the circulation. Take an intermission from time to time, grab a snack and always remember to wipe your mobile devices after downloading.
