More drama           Image: Tokyo Refugees
Tokyo Refugees (pictured) explores the issue of homelessness in Tokyo. Or some light-hearted drama can be found in Shanti Days: 365 Days of Happy Breathing, a film for all the yogis out there.
 
More action
Enter the world of heist and hijinks in the live-action rendition of Lupin the Third. Shun 
Oguri
stars as the world's greatest gentlemen thief, Lupin. Look out for other Asian heart-throbs, Kim Jun (Korea, Boys over Flowers) and Jerry Yan (Taiwan, Meteor Garden). Also stars Aussie actor, Nick Tate
 
More mouth-watering food films 
Learn the time-honoured wisdom of rural folk and their appreciation for organic produce in little forest - summer/autumn (pictured). Filled with lush landscapes, warmth and soul food, A Drop of the Grapevine is for anyone who has ever yearned to leave the city and get back to basics.
 
How about some cult?  
Fans eager for some horror can look forward to JU-ON -The Beginning of the End -. It was voted by Japanese viewers as the most frightening of all horror series. Director Sion Sono brings a bizarre showcase of gangster violence to comic extremes in Why Don’t You Play in Hell?
 
And a sprinkle of mystery                             
From the author of Confessions comes 
The Snow White Murder Case (pictured)a compelling social media commentary on a media-obsessed world. Think you can spot the real Mona Lisa? Riko, a talented appraiser finds herself embroiled in an unexpected mystery in All Round Appraiser Q - The Eyes of Mona Lisa.
