Shall We Dance?
Before Richard Gere and Jennifer Lopez ever put on their dancing shoes, there was the original Shall We Dance?, the award-winning Japanese comedy that inspired the American remake. On the surface, Sugiyama Shohei seems to have it all: a supportive wife, a beautiful child, a nice house and a well-paying job. But for some reason, that certain “something” is missing from Sugiyama’s life. On his evening commute home, Sugiyama notices a beautiful woman staring out the window of a dance studio. One fateful night, he decides to get off the train and seek out this mystery woman, a decision that soon plunges him headlong into the competitive world of ballroom dancing.
