July 8, 1997 | STEVEN SMITH, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES
The warmhearted Japanese comedy "Shall We Dance?" has inspired several happy endings beyond its becoming one of the nation's biggest homemade hits, with a take of more than $30 million. It's brought international fame to its 40-year-old writer-director, Masayuki Suo, and social acceptance to a pastime long viewed with suspicion in Japan: ballroom dancing--which, partly because of the film, is now a national craze.

Production of "Shall We Dance," starring Richard Gere and Jennifer Lopez, is moving from Toronto to Winnipeg, Canada, in part because of Toronto's SARS outbreak. A Miramax spokesman said the fact that Winnipeg's locations fit the script better played a bigger role in the decision. The film, to be directed by Peter Chelsom, is a remake of a 1997 Japanese film released by Miramax, with the remake set in Chicago. Shooting is set to start June 23.

March 31, 1996 | Teresa Watanabe, Teresa Watanabe is The Times' Tokyo bureau chief
It's 7:30 p.m. and the dark-suited Japanese business executives are beginning to trudge into the room. From the depths of their bags and briefcases, they pull out--suede-soled shoes. They don them and shrug off their jackets. Then, with steely concentration, they begin an intense training to help them achieve their latest competitive goal. But this session is a graceful recital of movement. Glide, thrust, turn; slow, slow, quick.
