This is the title of Japanese movie, and remade by Hollywood last year. The movie was a big hit as romance comedy movie in 1996 in Japan.
As you know from the title, this movie is about a social dance. A middle-aged man has an uneventful life. He works hard everyday for his living, and has nice family. However, he feels bored at his monotonous life after his living become steady. One day, a dance classroom attracts his eyes. There was beautiful lady standing by the window. His feeling is somehow lifted, and he decides to learn a social dance at the classroom.
I’ve seen the Hollywood “Shall We Dance?” and Japanese one later. In my opinion, I prefer former movie to original one. All actors and actress in former movie perform very well, specially two main characters, Richard Gere and Jennifer Lopez. They are attractive in that movie. The movie closely follows the original one.
On the other hand, my friends in Canada who love to see movies prefer Japanese version. According to their comments, the original one describes real Japanese business situation or business man in Japan. People can feel delicate changing of man feeling.
I recommend this movie for people who are bored their lives. I am sure that you feel you want to start dancing after you see this movie. Shall we dance?
