Movie: Shall We Dance? (1996 Japanese Version)

More info at Amazon

This story is more believable in the context of Japanese culture, which makes it more enjoyable and meaningful to me. Even the comedic characters seem possible, which the American version didn’t pull off. The one strength I grant to the American movie, though, is that it gives more attention to the impact of the main character’s secretive dancing on his wife and marriage, which is a central theme.
