Departures didn't win an Oscar for nothing! Skillful acting, breathtaking cinematography, smooth storytelling. Made me cry at least 7 times with breaks in between... I don't know how that happened. x)

Wow. Just wow. What a superb, wonderful film. Very emotional, you'd want to be made of rock not to have this film touch you. 10/10

Wonderful movie, it shows how much the Japanese people consider ceremony to be an important part of life and their culture. Excellent acting.

This crosses cultural boundaries , no matter where you are from, grief, loss , family , beauty & ritual are part of life. This movie shows all that in the most intimate way that captures our attention with a creative display of artistry like never before seen. 10/10

death is a taboo subject but this movie explores the aspect really well giving a different perspective on what everyone is afraid to speak about. The main theme of this movie is loss, wheather its death, his father abandoning him as a child or his wife leaving him. I think everyone can relate to his struggles one way or the other.
