Okuribito [Departures] (Review)

Tagline: The gift of last memories
Plot: A newly unemployed cellist takes a job preparing the dead for funerals

This is a great movie! One of the great movie from Japan.
Departures won an OSCAR as best foreign film.
This movie is about a man who lost his career, his dream and move back to the small town where he was born. When he is back to this town with his wife, he accidentally interviewed a job which need to prepare the dead for funerals. Make up for the dead, clean the dead body and the ceremony of the funeral.

for me, its kind of spiritual, deep and "shot-beautifully" film!
When they prepare the funerals, they have to make sure the dead have to be as pretty / beautiful as natural,... like when they alive.
This film is full of laughter and tears~
It's really a great movie and must watch! Don't miss it!

Rate: 7.8 / 10
