Highest Rated Japanese Movies


The Japanese cinema has been actively known for more than one hundred years and was able to win the Academy Award for the Best Foreign Film several times. Among the most revered Directors we remind: Akira Kurosawa, Hayao Miyazaki, Kenji Mizoguchi, Naomi Kawase and many others. With gripping sets, the Japanese film managed to enchant and enamor viewers, as if through a magic spell. The reality, however, is that it was only through strenuous efforts and dedication that the filmmakers of Japan were able to create some of the best movies in history.
