You might have read Sword Fighting Men, Will Chambara Movies be Hip in 2010, Japan Society Thinks So (December 09).

Well if you like classic Japanese Movies, here's an offer you can't refuse.

The Film Program at the Japan Society was generous enough to share a couple of tickets with us for the screening of Kenji Misumi's Destiny's Son (Kiru) on Friday, February 19, 2010 at 7:30 PM in New York.

Destiny's son

"In Kenji Misumi’s breakthrough film, Ichikawa seeks revenge and redemption after his family is murdered by a rival clan. An astonishing, dreamlike samurai film written by Kaneto Shindo, Destiny’s Son is a demonic masterpiece: designed with quasi-expressionist artistry, awash with surreal landscapes, and subsumed in an otherworldly beauty that fuses Zen and sword."

How can you win this contest?

Easy, answer one of the two following questions:

-What connection is there between this Chambara Movie Series and the original California Punk Rock scene?

-Which country's animated movies did I mention recently while writing about a Festival down under?

In case, there is a tie between two winners, here's a bonus question to separate you:

-List 5 stories from 5 different months on 5 different topics which I wrote for my weekly Tokyo Thursdays in 2009.

We must get all answers by 11AM (Eastern Time) on Thursday, February 18.

Send your answers to info@njconcierges with your name, e-mail, phone number.

Let us know if you want a single ticket or a pair.

Winners will be contacted Thursday afternoon.

Let the best swordsman or woman win!

200 Port Wines under one roof, Vinologia in Porto

Feb 17
What is a French guy doing in Portugal championing Port Wines, I wondered first when I discovered Vinologia or 'La Maison du Porto' in French. The idea of finding 200 Port Wines under one roof, you just have to make the trip to Porto, sounds appealing. Best of all if I am not mistaken you can taste them all. The site seems to be available only in French and German and could use some updating....
