Japanese People Recommend Japanese Movies

The What Japan Thinks site translated a poll by DIMSDRIVE Research in which Japanese people were asked what Japanese movies they would recommend to foreigners.

The series of movies entitled “It’s Hard Being a Man” (男はつらいよ) was recommended the most by both men and women. I haven’t seen it, but I have heard of it. In fact, I have only seen three of the top ten movies (Seven Samurai, My Neighbour Totoro, Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind) and I haven’t even heard of four of them before (Love and Honour, Always – Sunset in the Third Street, Dororo, Death Note). And isn’t Letters from Iwojima officially an American movie? Anyway, it looks like I have some movie watching to do!
