Introduction/序論 Again, it is time to celebrate! At the Inca Imperial International Film Festival Masakuza Kaneko’s The Albino’s Tree (2016) received the award for Best Photography and, even better, won the award for the Best Feature Film.

“On the day that I saw this movie, I was ‘ordered’ to fight, during my entire life, with divine violence.”
In short, Japanese cinema provided something for everyone – and through many of these cinematographical products a window on contemporary Japanese society was offered. Of course not all movies made this year are a must-see. So with our top 10, we aim to give a personal advice on which movies one should see.
