The Beauty of Cherry Blossoms

I love films that often appear at first glance to be very simple in form or plot yet possess a profound range of emotional depth and suggestive weight that when perfectly pitched with gorgeous cinematography and credible acting, lays bare the lyricism of the human condition even as characters struggle with loss and grief. In short, the film Cherry Blossoms conjures such a description. One of the best films I’ve seen all year.

What happens when a wife discovers that her husband is dying of a terminal illness but who then dies herself before telling him or their family? Subtle and yet packing an emotional punch, this film is a modern day love story that is heartbreaking yet poetic in its life affirming tone.

I love foreign movies, and am always looking for good ones to watch. This is a very beautiful movie so wonderfully captured on screen by cinematographer Hanno Lentz. This is a movie of love, journey, acceptance and about life.
