Shall We Dance
You may be familiar with the 2004 Miramax remake starring Richard Gere, but did you know that the 1996 Japanese Original of "Shall we Dance" won 14 awards at the Japanese Academy Awards? Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography, Best Director, Best Editing, Best Film, Best Lighting, Best Music Score, Best Screenplay, Best Sound, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, and Newcomer of the Year (in short, every award it was eligible to win).
The story is simple, but can ring so true for many dancers: A successful but unhappy Japanese accountant finds the missing passion in his life when he begins to secretly take ballroom dance lessons.
