Sideways in Japan

If you have seen the movie Sideways (an ode to Santa Barbara Pinot Noir), you no doubt remember the scene above where Miles (having just received bad news about his book project) self-medicates himself with the dregs of a tasting room dump bucket.

Well, it seems that the Japanese film industry realized that the story might just be popular in Japan too. Here's the trailer (in Japanese, but even if you don't understand, you get the picture).:

Now, I've read a bit about the Japanese version and they changed a couple of things - it is set in Napa Valley, the wine that is championed is Cabernet Sauvignon and the crucial back porch scene has been cut. But, if you watched the trailer, the dump bucket scene is executed perfectly!
