It's a quiet afternoon in suburban Tokyo as a well-dressed boy and his mother enter Nikken, a cram school for kindergartners and preschoolers.

Japanese popular culture has few courtroom dramas. There is no Rumpole of the Tokyo Bailey, no Perry Mason in Osaka. Juninin no yasashii nihonjin, a 1991 remake of Henry Fonda's jury-room classic Twelve Angry Men, is a comedy, its title translating as "Twelve Gentle Japanese". And Shun Nakahara's film is also a fantasy; for the past 66 years, no jury has sat in Japan.
