DEPARTURES (held over), A film by Yojiro Takita, PG-.13, 130 min, In Japanese with English subtitles
Unforgettablea deeply touching movie exploring an incredible range of emotions.  Jeffrey Lyons, Reel Talk
Departures is Yojiro Takitas deeply moving and irreverently amusing meditation on love, acceptance and coping with loss. It is the story of Daigo, a devoted cellist in an orchestra that has just been dissolved and who is suddenly left without a job. Daigo decides to move back to his old hometown with his wife to look for work and start over. He answers a classified ad entitled Departures thinking it is an advertisement for a travel agency only to discover that the job is actually for a Nokanshi, a funeral professional who prepares deceased bodies for burial and entry into the next life. While his wife and others despise the job, Daigo takes a certain pride in his work and begins to perfect the art of acting as a gentle gatekeeper between life and death, between the departed and the family of the departed. The film follows his profound and sometimes comical journey as he uncovers the wonder, joy and meaning of life and living.
