Not just hurried is the day. Because meeting a coming new year makes you happy on 31 Dec., some joyfulness can be felt.

The Wow-Choten Hotel, a Japanese comedy movie written and directed by a popular comedy writer in Japan Mitani Koki and released in Jan. 2006, lets you feel hurried but sort of happy like that.

At Hotel Avanti, of course it is a fictional hotel, a countdown party is held every single year. That starts at midnight on New Year's Day. About two hours until it begins are seen in the film. Many stories about many characters busily go on and intersect.

Roughly explained, the film's substance is that. A leading role is after a fashion, he does not so perfectly lead the tale. In the busiest day, a lot of stories busily happen and little by little they get to be related each other. Needless to say, funny and interesting things are there. Then you can get hurried but happy feelings.

Still more, also the set of Hotel Avanti is very terrific as Mitani Koki said he was let see importance of art in making a film by directing this movie. Some of the audience got to like to visit Hotel Avanti in real, they say.
