June film: "Mameshiba"
(Director: Toru Kamei, 2009, 106min. Rating: PG, Cast: Jiro Sato, Yumi Adachi, Tetsu Watanabe)

A film adaptation of the TV series which depicts the journey of a middle-aged man with a two-month old puppy in search of his mother who has run away from home.

One day Jiro, a 35-year old unemployed male who has never stepped out of his town, runs into Ichiro, a Mameshiba puppy with a red scarf around its neck. Ichiro turns out to be a puppy Jiro's runaway mother had sent for her family to come looking for her.
