The movie focuses on a Japanese publishing company’s small dictionary unit. There are only four or five people in it. They are working on a dictionary that will take fifteen years to complete. Fifteen years. The scene that got me was towards the end. The head of the dictionary project meets with the paper maker. They are testing paper.

WOW. I watched that film. [A Great Passage] on ANA. It was in Japanese, with subtitles. It was a long film. About making a dictionary.

An almost ridiculous movie, I could say.


An amazingly dorky main character (good acting!) with an amazingly contrastingly pretty wife.

I’m not sure I could recommend this movie to most people.
