We appreciated a cinema"OKURIBITO".
My husband and I saw a cinema"OKURIBITO" before Academy Awards were announced.We got deep impression and sheded tears.
Story: Motoki portraying a unemployed cellist went back to his born town Sakata-city,Yamagata pref. with his wife.He found a job advertise,"helping departures".That's mean was "helping departures to the other world"! The job is putting a dead body into a coffin,that is called "NOUKANSHI".
A Noukanshi's work is snuggles to someone's death.That's mean,he holds on the deceased's family and the history,and forgives for reasons of all.So a Noukanshi purify a death.
Why I sympathize with the cinema,the stage of this drama is Sakata city,Yamagata pref.
Sakata-city is similar to Tono-city.For example,both of them are northern country.And a funeral of neighborhood is very important for us.
A death,not limited to family,is close to me,I feel that since I live in Tono,too.
We are deligted at spring has come.
Because,we feel that the ecology is close to themselves.We know that spring is a birth,and winter is a death.
And we know winteris before a birth .
And so,we have a deep feeling of awe to the life as same as the ecology.
I supporse most of the people living in a big city can't feel the ecology,and they can't feel a death close to them.
