Daigo Kobayashi, a cellist, dreamt of going around the world with his wife Mika. Unfortunately, the orchestra folds, so he sells his instrument, retreats to the small town he came from, lives in his late mother's house, and tries to start a new life. He answers a classified ad entitled 'Departures' thinking it is for a travel agency. Daigo's actual responsibilities entail preparing the local decedents for their "casketing," a process with an elaborate ritual of preparation, cleansing, and presentation, all done with great precision, grace, and utmost respect for both the deceased and watching family members. In dire financial straits, Daigo embarks on this new (and ancient) career path. While his wife and others despise the job, Daigo takes a certain pride in his work and begins to perfect the art, acting as a gentle gatekeeper between life and death, between the departed and their families
Katyn by Andrzej Wajda( Visual )

2 editions published in 2009 in Polish and held by 771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Katyn est avant tout un film sur la lutte incessante pour la mémoire et la vérité. C'est aussi un règlement de compte sans compromis avec le mensonge qui a forcé la Pologne populaire à oublier ses héros. Anna, la femme d'un capitaine d'un régiment des Uhlans, attend le retour de son mari. Elle ne peut se résoudre à l'idée qu'il ait été assassiné par les Russes. En avril 1943, l'épouse d'un général apprend la mort de son mari quand les Allemands découvrent l'existence de charniers dans la forêt de Katyn contenant des milliers d'officiers polonais. Silence et mensonges brisent le coeur d'Agnieszka, la soeur d'un pilote qui a connu le même sort. Quel sens les mots Patrie et Liberté ont-ils dans un État polonais d'après-guerre tombé sous la dépendance de l'Union Soviétique?
