Japanese Story

A feisty Australian geologist (Sandy) lands the unwanted task of showing a Japanese businessman (Hiromitsu) around the mines and deserts of the Pilbara, with a view to selling his company the unique geology software she has been developing. Hiromitsu meanwhile, mistakes her as his driver, and demands they trek to the desert, blissfully unaware of the dangers. Against the background of this elemental Australian landscape, these two strangers journey further and further into the West Australian desert, leaving more and more of what they know about each other and themselves behind. This quirky drama was the most acclaimed Australian film of 2003 netting 21 Australian film awards including 8 AFI awards. Toni Collette, Gotaro Tsunashima star.
