Tokyo Fiancée – Blu-ray

Amélie (Pauline Etienne) is infatuated with all things Japanese. She was born in Japan, but her parents returned to Belgium when she was a little girl, and she’s always dreamed of going back. Now, as a young adult, she finally has her chance. She moves to Tokyo, finds a small suburban apartment, and immerses herself in Japanese culture. Then, working as a French tutor, Amélie meets her match in Rinri (Taichi Inoue). He’s a chivalrous and pensive Japanese student obsessed with all things French — which soon includes Amélie, even though she’s Belgian. With all the awkwardness and wonder of first love, Amélie and Rinri delight in exploring Tokyo and each other. But even as Amélie reclaims the magic of her childhood, and Rinri seeks out the openness discouraged by his culture, they both question whether there’s room for reality in this fantasy. An adaptation of a recent novel by the writer Amélie Nothomb, a best-­‐seller in France and published in more than 40 countries.
