“Heart-warming, funny, wise and profound. Not to be missed.” Empire
A delicate balance between drama and comedy is achieved by this heart-warming tale about an unemployed cello player who stumbles reluctantly into an unusual but life-changing career in the funeral trade. Departures won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 2009.
