Cherry Blossoms

I was looking through my archives, and I don't think I ever posted about this film. 

So ... I'm a bit of a sentimental sap, but I cry watching this trailer. 

It's playing in Seattle for just a week, and I'm going to be out of town for six of those days. I'm hoping I can figure out how to get there that last day. 

I love the conflicting views of what makes a satisfying life—the hedonistic husband who is happy with his daily pleasure of having a loving relationship with his wife versus the epicurean wife who wants to have the big, grand adventure of seeing Mt. Fuji. The music. The acting. You expect the husband to be the one to go, and then it's the wife. That moment when he's on the bed, and he has laid her clothes out next to him. And then he packs up her clothes so he can take "her" to Mt. Fuji with him finally. 

Just beautiful ...
