Movie Of The Week: Departures

I heard about this Academy Award winning Best Foreign Language Film while watching Leonard Maltin’s Secret’s Out on the Reelz Channel.

Departures, directed by Yojiro Takita, is the story of a young musician who loses his job and is forced to take another position preparing bodies for burial. I usually wait for movies to come to cable, so I’m adding this one to my list. Until it arrives, I’ll be watching Six Feet Under reruns.
