After Life Réalisé par Hirokazu Kore-eda
This premise could quickly turn sappy, pretentious, or mawkish, but in Kore-eda’s it yields a subtle, clear-eyed, and humane vision of how people look back on their lives.

The film offers both 1) a burned-out bureaucratic agency, replete with workers – clad in bland logo-marked uniforms – suffering fatigue and struggling earnestly in meetings with staff and clients; and 2) a dazzling apotheosis of cinema’s revelatory capacity, collapsing a year’s worth of stunning seasonal change into one week and featuring endearing protagonists reminiscing upon their grandest joy.

Thoughtful, quiet, and deeply sympathetic, Kore-eda’s film comprises multiple narratives, large and small, affectionately seeking out singular moments in the lives of its characters (which include a prostitute, a little girl, and, in a nod to Ikiru, a stifled businessman named Watanabe)… With its meditative, humanistic tone, After Life is the cinematic reminiscence of limbo itself, this transitional space of contemplation and nostalgia.
