July film: "Thermae Romae "
(2012, 188min. Rating : M)
Please come along to our monthly Japanese film night!
When Roman architect Lucius’ bathhouse plans are rejected because they’re not modern enough, he faces a crisis of confidence. But with his discovery of a time-travel portal between ancient Rome and present-day Japan (veritably overflowing with modern bathhouses), it seems that Lucius’ luck might just turn around. Get your toga on and prepare for a hilarious comedy that will have you in stitches! Based on a recent smash-hit manga series.
