Cherry Blossoms (Kirschblüten - Hanami) - Doris Dörrie (2008 Germany)

When Trudi learns that her husband Rudi is dangerously ill, she suggests visiting their children in Berlin without telling him the truth.

Beautiful, touching and sentimental film highlighting just how easy it is to get so caught up in ourselves that we miss out on truly understanding the people that are closest to us. The Japanese section of this film is shot all through the cherry blossom celebration and it just looks gorgeous. Measured and mature film-making here. Watch this one with someone you care about.
