  • More details on this film at the Internet Movie Database


Acclaimed at festivals everywhere, the film explores the connections between memory, imagination and identity - and our relationship with the movies and with each other - in the story about a normal week in limbo. Every Monday a new consignment of the recently dead arrive for processing. Each is allowed three days to choose the single moment in life he or she wants most to remember.. This moment is then recreated by actors and is then screened at week's end, before the shade passes on to eternity. Most comply, but businessman Mr Watanbe insists he can find no defining moment worthy of recall from an undistinguished and uneventful life.
