Director: Hirokazu Koreeda
Genre: Drama
Rating: 4 of 5
IMDB: http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0165078 Summary:
Wandafuru Raifu (known as After Life outside Japan) is a moving film about a group of civil servants whos job it is to help recently deceased people choose one (and only one) memory from their lives, to take with them to eternity. The councellors are themselves deceased people who couldnt make the choice for one reason or the other. Wandafuru Raifu builds up in a slow tempo, bringing a smile to the lips at times, and more importantly, it makes you ask yourself whats really important in life. Definitely worth watching. --
