This is one of the best movies you will ever watch.
My husband and I stumbled on to this treasure–love, life and death treated with care and subtle humor. An absolute surprise and one of our favorite foreign films.
You may watch hundreds of movies and forget them ,only few movies would affect you and stick to your memory .. this masterpiece is one of these few. it takes your mind in a journey full of highly detailed scenes with a wonderful music that tells a lot and provoke intense emotions without a single ward .
departures is very honest, tender and realistic movie it discusses death. and although death is the only fact in our lives it is still a confusing and disturbing issue ,so how would be your life if you see death face to face every day !! the philosophy of death and life and how to accept it .simply it is a highly recommended movie.
I saw Departures years ago and it overwhelmed me with the tender respect it gave such taboo subject. One of my all time favorites.
What did you think? Who should watch it?
