Postmen in the Mountains is apparently making the rounds of theatres in the U.S.
It's a very nice film in my opinion. A lot more to my taste than stuff like that violent looking asian american film about stressed out yuppie kids.
It's funny how insular the American film market is. Another reason I like living in Tokyo. It's more international here.
Take Postmen in the Mountains as one example. The film was made in 1998. It was a "top box-office grosser" in Japan in 1991. Only in 1994 did it entering small independent theatres and film festivals in the U.S.
