In Kore-eda Hirokazus AFTER LIFE a group of people recently deceased arrives at the outskirts of heaven. There they spend a week deciding which of all the memories from their lives they most want to spend eternity in and heavenly counsellors help them in the process. The dead souls help each other come to terms with what was most important to them while they were alive. Shot in a realistic yet slightly dreamy light this touching and humanistic look at life and death carefully avoids being overly sentimental and is widely hailed as a masterpiece.
