Genesis goes to Friday Eiga Night


Last Friday night, we went to see a free film viewing hosted by The Japan Foundation. It was a live-action movie entitled “Quartet!” Directed and Produced by Junichi Mimura and was a part the special screenings of the 24th Tokyo International Film Festival on 2011.


The free film viewing was held at The Japan Foundation Manila Office inside Pacific Star Bldg. located at Sen. Gil Puyat cor Makati Ave. whereas onlya maximum of 60 people can see the movie due to the limited space available.

The movie was about a dysfunctional family. A son who aims to be a professional violist, a daughter who is in bad terms with her parents, a mother who tries to manage her family, and a father who is unemployed. They decided to create a Family Quartet with the hopes that it will bring their family closer again through music. A heartwarming story of a family full of music. The filming took place at Urayasu City where there was severe damage due to the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami back in March of 2011 whereas staff ans civilians worked hard to finish the film.

The place is a “no pictures zone” so we didn’t really get any pictures of the place, but inside there was a library where we loitered around. They have a lot of reading materials such educational books, novels, magazines and an awesome collection of manga with such famous titles.

All in all it was awesome and a nice watch. We would like to thank The Japan Foundation for hosting the film viewing. We would love to come by and watch again sometime.
