選舉 The Campaign (120分鐘)

(Kazuhiro Soda / Japan / 2007)
Forty-year-old "Yama-san" Yamauchi leads a peaceful, humdrum life until Japan's politically dominant Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) suddenly chooses him as its official candidate to run for a vacant seat on the Kawasaki city council. Yama-san had zero experience in politics, no charisma, no supporters, no constituency, and no time to prepare for the impending election. The film goes deep inside the old-boy club that runs Japanese-style “democracy,” and how Yama-san is indoctrinated into their ranks.
