Amélie, a well-intentioned and eager young westerner, goes to Japan
to spend a year working at the Yumimoto Corporation. Returning to
the land where she was born is the fulfilment of a dream for
Amélie, but once there her working life quickly becomes a comic
nightmare of terror and self-abasement. Disturbing, hilarious and
totally convincing, Fear and Trembling displays an elegant and
shrewd understanding of the intricate ways in which Japanese
relationships are made and spoiled.
