2019. 31 years after being destroyed during World War 3, Tokyo (now 'Neo-Tokyo') has been rebuilt and is a thriving metropolis. Shotaro Kaneda is the leader of a biker gang. His friend Tetsuo is injured in an accident and taken to a top-secret government facility. He develops telekinetic powers but decides to use them for evil rather than good. He has the same powers as Akira, the force that destroyed Tokyo in 1988, and now it appears that history will repeat itself. (This film is in Japanese with English subtitles.)
Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for Up For Love at Dendy Canberra
Academy Award®-winner Jean Dujardin stars in this French, romantic-laugh-out-loud-comedy that is all about the long and short of falling in love.
When successful lawyer Diane (Virginie Efira) gets a call from the man who has found her mobile phone, she is immediately intrigued and charmed. As she and Alexandre (Dujardin) chat and make plans to meet, it becomes evident that the chemistry between them is great indeed. However, when they meet the next day it turns out there may be one small problem. New relationships are always awkward and for Diane & Alexandre the challenges in their relationship could be somewhat of a tall order. Despite his charisma and good looks, Alexandre comes up a bit short (almost 2 feet, actually).
Is Diane out of his reach or can they meet in the middle? They’re both looking for love but society is watching and judging. A perfect match in every way but one, will this new couple be up for the challenge? Will they be UP FOR LOVE?
“Dujardin...exudes sex appeal, while Efira is stylish and sophisticated; the special effects that make Dujardin appear so small are virtually flawless.” David Stratton, The Australian
"The two central characters are played with charisma..." Margaret Pomeranz, Stage & Screen
