Trailer for Departures (Okuribito)

Movie Preview: Departures

When Departures (Okuribito in Japanese) won the Oscar for Best Foreign-Language Film, it took a lot of people by surprise — including the film's director Yojiro Takita. Takita (who used to direct porn comedies?) apparently didn't even prepare an acceptance speech.

After all that awards excitement, I'm excited to check out the trailer. The movie follows a cellist named Daigo Kobayashi who is forced to quit his orchestra in Tokyo and return to his rural hometown. To support himself and his wife, Daigo takes a job as a mortician. Variety describes the movie as "tonally eccentric" and "lushly scored." I found the trailer to be quite touching.

A Japanese ex-porn director wins an Oscar for a movie about a mortician? I'm in. Departures will hit theaters May 22. To check out the trailer for yourself,
