In a flash, this was flung some distance off the car in the accident yesterday. Toyota vehicles are our best sellers and they are very reliable cars.
But hey, in the southern oceans, the Japanese whaling fleet is a disgrace.

Japanese Story is having a rerun this week and the 'Toyota leap', from the ads, is made by the Japanese visitor when the car gets free of the sand in the outback. The starkness, the silences and the mundane, as someone said, are very memorable sequences and the corny parts don't stand in the way of the quirky, unexpected insights in the film.
