Daigo decides to move back to his old hometown with his wife to look for work and start over. He answers a classified ad entitled “Departures” thinking it is an advertisement for a travel agency only to discover that the job is actually for a “Nokanshi” or “encoffineer,” a funeral professional who prepares deceased bodies for burial and entry into the next life. While his wife and others despise the job, Daigo takes a certain pride in his work and begins to perfect the art of “Nokanshi,” acting as a gentle gatekeeper between life and death, between the departed and the family of the departed. The film follows his profound and sometimes comical journey with death as he uncovers the wonder, joy and meaning of life and living.
Plot: Daigo, a cellist, is laid off from his orchestra and moves with his wife back to his small hometown where the living is cheaper. Thinking he’s applying for a job at a travel agency he finds he’s being interviewed for work with departures of a more permanent nature – as an undertaker’s assistant.

A very powerful film
This film is about an unemployed man taking up a job as a person who prepares body before putting into the coffin.

“Departures” is a beautiful film. It is about the last journey before a person is reduced to ashes, yet it never feels gloomy. In fact, it shows that all humans die one day, and it is how we view it and how those left behind cope with death that matters. Kobayashi treats the bodies with such enormous respect and dignity, which touches me a lot. “Departures” is a film to feel. It makes you think and feel about such a taboo topic which is not normally discussed. I commend the filmmakers for making “Departures”. It’s a must see.

Review By: Gordon-11 Rating: Date: 2010-03-20
A very Japanese movie that also translates exceptionally to Western culture. Death is truly universal.
The movie is based on a personal memoir of “a Budhist mortician”, written by Shinmon Aoki, and is very well filmed and acted. The story is about a man who returns to his home town after a failed attempt at a career in the big town and gets a job as a mortician. What is not immediately apparent to non Japanese is that any job involving handling dead people is traditionally seen as unclean and that explains some of the reactions of the people in the film. In the end, helping someone pass through the “gateway” of death is presented as cathartic, noble and spiritual.

A very beautiful film that I recommend watching. The only issue that I could see is with its length, which is a little over two hours.
