Watch The First Trailer For Nature-Friendly Japanese Comedy WOOD JOB!

Patryk Czekaj, Contributing Writer
Japanese filmmakers have that special ability to turn even the seemingly completely unappealing  ideas into truly heart-warming, crowd-pleasing pictures of the most entertaining kind. Given that Wood Job!'s main storyline focuses on a high school graduate, who moves from his hometown to a remote village in order to work as a forestry trainee, the first 90-second trailer feels surprisingly inviting and pleasurable and promises a lot of laugh-inducing moments (almost naked tree riding, anybody?).

Based on Miura Shion novel of the same name, Wood Job! is directed and scripted by Yaguchi Shinobu, whose works include such fine and amusing comedies as Adrenaline Drive and Swing Girls. The film will premiere on May 10, 2014 in Japan.

Yuki Hirano (Shota Sometani) wants to live an easy life, like working a part-time job after his high school graduation. But, after his high school graduation, Yuki hears from his homeroom teacher that he has been hired for a job. When Yuki gets home, his mother is packing his stuff. Yuki's mother and his homeroom teacher decided that Yuki will work as a forestry trainee after his graduation. Yuki will have to go Kamusari Village.When Yuki arrives at the station near Kamusari, a man named Yoki Iida (Hideaki Ito) awaits for him. Yoki takes him to Kamusari Village, which is a place so small and remote that cellphones don't work there. Since then, Yuki begins to work as a forestry trainee and becomes assimilated with the beauty of nature and the warm-hearted people in the village.
