Amy H. (ames) from CHARLESTON, SC
Reviewed on 1/12/2011...
This is an absolutely beautiful, touching movie about a man discovering what he was meant to do in life - and it wasn't what he thought.

The main character is a cellist with a small Tokyo orchestra. He loses his job right at the beginning, and he and his wife move back to his home town. He takes a job preparing the dead for burial, and oh my goodness, this is a beautiful movie. It's funny, it's touching, the acting is supurb (I loved the main character and his wife), the little funeral scenes scattered throughout are surprisingly emotionally affective, and I cannot recommend it enough.
