Always zoku Sanchome no Yuhi

Always zoku Sanchome no Yuhi (The Sunshine on Third Street) is a brilliant popular animae, a sequel to the first animae to win an award from the Japan Academy (of motion pictures) which we screened earlier. The movie is about ordinary families living in Tokyo during the Showa period. It has everything: humor, pathos, stunning visual effects and of course, a beautiful love story. Aspiring writer Chagawa is living with Junnosuke while the love of his life is working as a cabaret dancer, paying off her debt. His neighbor Suzuki's auto business is growing. All ends up beautifully in the Tokyo of the 1960's.
