Don't know about you but I don't understand Japanese. So, all Japanese movies in Australia are subtitled, don't need to rely on captions so much because they're already there!! Soundtrack music is another kettle of fish...

The 15th Japanese Film Festival is on from 17 - 27 November in Sydney [and Melbourne 29 November to 6 December 2011]
