Tucked in a second-floor among the many micro-bars that make up Tokyo’s Golden Gai is La Jettée (after Chris Marker’s mind-blowing 1962 experimental short). Though the place can hardly hold more than 10 people, it serves as a mecca for film lovers to film stars and anything in between. Last time I visited, I ended up discussing contemporary French cinema with two young music executives and the owner (Tomoyo Kawai, a true film buff if there ever was one), while sitting next to Fanny Ardant.
