Okuribito

Okuribito

I watched Okuribito last night. I don’t know why I hadn’t watched it before really considering all the hype – and I love Japanese cinema. It’s actually a hugely satisfying movie with a score by Joe Hisaishi, for which he delivers his masterpiece. I’m not going to go on at length about the poetic, philosophical and uniquely Japanese qualities of the movie, but just recommend it to everyone as a film you have got to see (before you die).
