Considered by many critics to be Kore-eda’s masterpiece, After Life takes place in a waystation for the recently deceased, where the dead are invited to choose a single memory to spend eternity with.
Brilliantly blending poetic fantasy with real life testimonies, the film is a profound meditation on loss and memory.
"Kore-eda, with this film and the 1997 masterpiece 'Maborosi' has earned the right to be considered with Kurosawa, Bergman and other great humanists of the cinema. His films embrace the mystery of life, and encourage us to think about why we are here, and what makes us truly happy." - Roger Ebert.
