The bad news is, I haven't been able to watch it. The screener froze after the first 30 minutes. (I hate when that happens!) From what I saw -- the brief opening tribute to silent cinema contains more impulsive originality than anything in The Artist -- this looks like an agreeable cut above your average tear-jerker.

Here is the description from SDAFF's press release: "A photographer's grown more interested in his young models than in his craft -- or his family. Ignored and dejected, his wife wants nothing more than to have a child. Such is the marriage between Shunsuke and Sakura, ten years together and on the cusp of separation. But before one fateful Christmas, they go on an Okinawan trip that promises to change everything. Starring Hiroko Yakushimaru (the mother from Always Sunset on 3rd Street) and Etsushi Toyokawa (Love Letter, 20th Century Boys), A Good Husband is a charming drama that looks at contemporary marriage with a tinge of fantasy and through the watchful eyes of a crop of quirky side characters."

Japan's A Good Husband screens at 7 pm. Tickets are $10 for the general public and $7 for SDAFF members. Give the gift of movies. A membership to SDAFF makes a great stocking stuffer.

Asian? Does that include everything? Picked up the Hong Kong film Beast Cops in the Cantonese section at my library a couple of weeks ago. Damn, fine film. A must see if you haven't yet.
