Afterlife / Wandafuru Raifu (Japanese)

If, at the time of your death, you were asked to pick just ONE memory of your life, and you were given an option to live/stay in that memory for ever, how easy or difficult you think it can be?

Afterlife is a film that moves you with its answers. It shows how tough the above question can be for some, because they don't think any of their past experiences is worthy enough to live in forever. And it can be equally tough for others, who feel they have so many such experiences that living in just one would mean losing out on all others.

Its a wonderfully simple movie, that makes you sit back, question and not take life for granted.
The pace of the movie reminds you of a gentle brook and the screenplay is like hide and seek in the woods nearby.

Simple Japanese cinematic excellence.
