Deparatures 2008 film reviews by Jitu Das film reviews 2022


Departures 2008

When did I first watched this movie ! When I was class 10 maybe on World movies channel, I   was so fascinated by world movies back then especially French and Japanese movies. This movie made such as impression on my mind that I never forgot the beauty of the movie.

I watched it later in my college days, and I did understood how significant the movie was that won also Academy award. The movie shows death in a aesthetic way, along the rituals involved in it. In the end everybody dies, but death can be only meaningful, if one lives a meaningful life in one's term. This movie shows how the process of saying goodbye to the person who have died should be respectful and as graceful as possible. This movie has been one of the most beautiful movie since it has taught to people to connect leaving the misunderstanding between them, to live as simply and with enjoyment with the things and people who are with us. We take it for granted the things and people who are there for us, and hopefully there is someone or something to remind us that we have a lot to be grateful for. This is one of those movies that gives you a fresh perspective on life. So, I highly recommend this movie.

Even though Deparatures have  such a heavy theme  of death , the aesthetic of nature , country side, music and sense of humour makes it a wholesome movie. The soundtrack by Joe Hisaishi has made the  movie very soulful.

In death we lose everything, our body, family, house and everything, but we could leave a legacy that will keep on living even after our death. That legacy is nothing but the things we do with love, the beautiful creation and the good moments that we share with the ones we love.
