AMMAN — Jordanian audiences will get a taste of Japan’s culture at the Japanese Film Week, which opens Sunday and concludes on November 5 at Amman’s Rainbow Theatre.

A film will be screened every day at 7pm, and admission is free. 

The films are in Japanese with English subtitles, according to a statement from the organisers. 

The first film, to be screened on Sunday, is the romantic drama “Jinx!!!”, in which outgoing Korean girl Jiho tries to engineer a love connection between two fellow students at a Japanese university. 

Monday will witness a more sombre drama in “Be Sure to Share,” about a father and son facing illness and death at the same time.

In the film “My Pretend Girlfriend”, to be screened on Tuesday, a high school student is asked to pretend to be the boyfriend of a girl in a nearby class.

On Wednesday, audiences can watch the romantic comedy “Beyond the Memories”, in which a man and woman with tragic pasts become attracted to each other. The film won the Best Supporting Actress award at the 38th Hochi Film Awards.

The last film, “It All Began When I Met You,” which will be screened next Thursday, features six intertwining stories centred on Tokyo Station, one of the busiest railway stations in the world.

Several of the films were previously screened at the Tokyo International Film Festival and other events.


The film week is organised by the Japanese embassy and the Royal Film Commission.
