If you could choose only one memory to hold on to for eternity, what would it be? That’s the question at the heart of Hirokazu Kore-eda’s revelatory international breakthrough, a bittersweet fantasia in which the recently deceased find themselves in a limbo realm where they must select a single moment from their life to be recreated on film for them to take into the next world. After Life is a profound meditation on memory, our interconnectedness, and the amberlike power of cinema to freeze time. (Japan, 1998, 119min., In Japanese with English subtitles, NR | Dir. Hirokazu Kore-eda)
