Veteran documentarian Frederick Wiseman has turned his camera to many topics, including high-school students and boxers. Now he is taking a peep backstage at the legendary exotic dance club Crazy Horse, which opened in a former wine cellar in Paris in 1951. The doc (2011; pictured), screening from June 30 at Bunkamura’s Le Cinema (2-24-1 Dogenzaka, Shibuya-ku; www.bunkamura.co.jp), gives glimpses of what the audience sees, but also examines the dancers’ daily lives and preparations behind the scenes (in French with Japanese subtitles).

Jean Dujardin, who won an Oscar for his turn in last year’s surprise hit The Artist, takes multiple roles in The Players, showing at Human Trust Cinema Shibuya (2-7-1 Yurakucho, Chiyoda-ku; www.ttcg.jp) from June 23. The French comedy is made up of several short vignettes all on the topic of infidelity, with Dujardin playing a different cheating man in each.

The Japanese doc How to Build a Mobile House is on the road from June 30 at Shibuya’s Eurospace (1-5 Maruyamacho, Shibuya-ku; www.eurospace.co.jp). Just as the title states, architect Kyohei Sakaguchi builds a fully-functional home on wheels for ¥26,000, while reflecting on the state of residential architecture in Japan.
