It was in the 1980's.Many Japanese companies built factories here in the United States.There were cultural conflicts.This is a funny movie about differences between Japan and the United states.This is a classic movie in the 1980's , but weIt was in the 1980's.Many Japanese companies built factories here in the United States.There were cultural conflicts.This is a funny movie about differences between Japan and the United states.This is a classic movie in the 1980's , but we still learn a lot of things from this movie.

- Plot
I love the story.There were many conflicts and friendships between Kazuhiro (Japanese manager)and Hunt Stevens (American manager).But finally they understood each other.They built 15,000 cars in order to keep the factory in their city..Basically, this is a well done story of mutual understandings of different cultures.
- Actors
Michael Keaton played an American Manager ,Hunt Stevonson.He showed a great leadership.He persuaded Japanese.He inspired Americans.He was a great role model.
Hunt's introduction was great.He said Hajimemashte(Nice to see you) Yoroshiku onegaishimasu.This kind of humble words are very important to work with Japanese.
Gedde Watanabe played a Japanese manager.He is a typical sarary man who is always afraid of his boss.He really loves his family.His wife was typical Japanese who wouldn't interfere with her husband's business.
Daily exercise, I guess that many Japanese factories ask employees to do the daily raido-taiso exercise in the morning. It build a great team work sprot.Finally Americans understood
Japanese employees are doing good.But most of them are not Japanese native .
The president of Assan, So Yamamura did a great job.He played a tough president.But finally, he liked American guys.

What Americans learn? Japanese are crazy about no defect.. That's why People around the world love Japanese products.However, there are huge efforts of quality control at Japanese factories i n order to realize no defect.Japanese arrive early and leave leave They don't take a lunch break.Although,some Japanese died of too much work(Karoshi)

Why many American manufactures have gone to China, Mexico and other countries.. The reason is not only cheap wages but hard workers overseas. If America tried to keep manufactures,they work 'Crazy" like Asians.

I love this movie.
