Lucius, an ancient Roman architect, time travels to modern Japan and learns many techniques to build amazing bath houses back in Rome.

When Roman architect Lucius’ bathhouse plans are rejected because they’re not modern enough, he faces a crisis of confidence. But with his discovery of a time-travel portal between ancient Rome and present-day Japan (veritably overflowing with modern bathhouses), it seems that Lucius’ luck might just turn around. Get your toga on and prepare for a hilarious comedy that will have you in stitches! Based on the smash-hit manga series.

2012 | Comedy/Fantasy | 108 min | Dir. Hideki Takeuchi | In Japanese with subtitles
