In a long time!!!!! Japanese movie with subtitles - won a best picture award last year. Without telling you too much, I was amazed at how much I enjoyed this movie...even with the typical over-acting/mannerisms that you see in many Japanese movies. Story is about a young man who loses his job and has to return home with his new wife and look for work. Finally finds a job working for a man who prepares bodies for cremation (an amazing ritual!!!) and all the stigmas he has to address with his new job. Great characters and a few wonderful story lines within. Don't read any more of this review...just go rent the movie. Stick with it and I'm sure you'll wind up loving it as I did.
