[Night Cinema] Enjoy high-quality Scandinavian movies for parents and children at a lakeside theater

The market hall, where you can enjoy shopping during the day, transforms into a movie theater after sunset.
An outdoor screen has been set up in a lakeside location with a pleasant breeze, and three Scandinavian films from Norway, Sweden, and Finland will be screened on a rotating basis every day.

[Screening film] 5/3 (Friday/Holiday) Constitution Day “Rosband” (Norway/Selected by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology/Japanese subtitled version)

A lovely yet energetic youth music road movie from Norway. ``Rossband Immortale'' is a band consisting of Grimm, a drummer who is saddened by the discord between his parents, and Axl, a guitarist and vocalist who is tone-deaf and has a lot of assumptions. In order to participate in the Norwegian Rock Tournament, Tilda, a 9-year-old cello girl, and Mattin, a famous driver from the neighborhood, head to Tromsø, a town in the far north.
Will the four of them be able to safely reach Tromsø and perform at the rock tournament? Director Christian Loh, who is known as a master of children's films, depicts the film against the backdrop of the rich nature of Scandinavia.

The director's latest work "Little Ella" will be released in theaters on Friday, April 4th.

Director: Christian Loh / 2018 production / 94 minutes / Norway/Sweden / FILMBIN AS © 2018 ALLE RETTGHETER FORBEHOLDT

[Screening film] May 5th (Sat) Green Day “The Movie Nils's Mysterious Journey” (Sweden/Japanese version)

One day, Nils, a mischievous boy who lives in a rural village in southern Sweden, breaks his promise to the fairy Tomte and is magically reduced in size. However, as a result of this, he becomes able to talk to animals, and along with Morten the goose and Carrot the hamster, he sets out on a journey as a member of a flock of geese. Through his adventures, Nils learns courage, responsibility, and cooperation.

A movie version produced in 1980 based on the TV anime series "Nils's Mysterious Journey", which was broadcast on NHK from 1983. Mamoru Oshii also participated in the direction, and it was produced by almost the same staff as the TV anime version, but it has never been shown to the public.

Director: Nagayuki Toriumi, Masami Anno, Mamoru Oshii / Produced in 1983 / 97 minutes

[Screening film] 5/5 (Sun) Children's Day "Comet in Moominland Puppet Animation" (Finland/Japanese dubbed version)

“Adult Puppet Moomin” is now available in an even more beautiful image! This work, supervised by Tove himself, is a beautiful feature-length film that has been color-corrected and re-edited from the TV series produced in Poland from 1978 to 1982.

The original work is ``Comet in Moominland'', which is said to be one of the masterpieces of Moomin stories. A very important work in which Moomintroll, Snufkin, and Snoke's daughter meet for the first time. It is said that the original author, Tove Jansson, loved the work because it is impressive with its beautiful, ``richly colored'' background and carefully crafted accessories, mainly puppets made of felt.

The theme song is performed by Icelandic songstress Björk, and the Japanese dubbed version features veteran voice actors who have appeared in many popular works, including Minami Takayama, Ikuko Tani, and Takashi Nakao.

Director: Maria Lindberg / Produced in 2010 / 75 minutes / Finland, Poland, Austria
