Funky Forest: The First Contact (ナイスの森 THE FIRST CONTACT Naisu no mori: The First Contact) is a 2005 Japanese comedy consisting of over 20 vignettes. These vignettes seem completely random at first but by the end of the film each of the characters has some sort of connection to everyone else via one or more mutual acquaintance.
