"Opening Night of The CJS's 2008/09 MOVIE NIGHT Season."

The Yakuza

The Canada Japan Society is proud to present, as our opening night of the 2008/09 Movie Night Season, Sydney Pollacks 1974 action - drama starring Robert Mitchum and Ken Takakura in his first major Hollywood role.

The film is masterfully filmed by Pollack in equisite colours, showing Japan in the early 1970s. The story revolves around an ex-GI who is drawn into the shady world of the Japanese Yakuza to fulfill an obligation to an old friend.

After the action settles down, please join us for an all inclusive wine and cheese reception after the film. It's a great chance to talk about the film and mingle with other movie lovers!

*Admission: $10.00 for CJS Members and $20.00 for others *Ticket price covers post-screening reception.
