I did see Hagiuda Koji's PARADISE SEA (Rakuen) a couple of years ago when it
played at the New Cinema from Japan screenings, following its presentation
in Toronto.  It's since played festivals in Singapore and Taipei before
finally getting a release in Japan this weekend.  I have credits, but really
can't remember much except that its about an old man making a boat.  I
remember Gavin made a defence of it on the list, but don't have a copy of
that.  Well, if anyone can remind me anything about it - privately, or on
the list - it would be appreciated.  And Gavin, in case you're reading this,
PEKING GENJIN is finally out on Hong Kong VCD!  (Another film that screened
in New Cinema from Japan that year.)
