The Great Passage Trailer (2013)
Trailer for The Great Passage.
In 1995, failing as a salesman, Majime is transferred to the reference department of a publishing house to work on The Great Passage, a dictionary meant to recognize how new words and slang are changing the Japanese language. The job – which will last more than a decade – is not for everyone, but with his linguistic skills and obsession with words Majime finds his true calling.
Awkward, socially clumsy and solitary by nature, he is only truly at home with his books and the house cat Tora-san. Then he meets his landlady’s beautiful granddaughter, recently returned from culinary school, and he is totally smitten; words fail him.
