Giants and Toys

I just adore late 50's early '60's Japanese movies. Giants & Toys  is one of those timeless gems worth taking out of the box for a polish.  Struggling lower management staff @ World candy manufacturing company needs a fresh face to launch the very competitive, cut-throat, caramel line.

Complete with rotten teeth, their small village discovery Kyoko becomes a media sensation. 

This film is a blast! I love the peek inside Japanese life in 1958. The tongue in cheek political machinations and the win or die candy wars will have you laughing out loud.
