Okuribito (2008)

A newly unemployed cellist takes a job preparing the dead for funerals.

Subtle and touching tale of man pursuing an unusual and frowned upon work; made in good taste and not without some fine humour.

Maltin***: "Offbeat, leisurely paced, and disarmingly funny at times, this likable film becomes highly emotional as loose ends in Motoki's life are tied up and he comes to embrace nis unusual profession. Some will find this manioulative; others will succumb and tears will flow."
