Cherry Blossoms (Germany)
Dir. Doris Dörrie, 2008, 127 min.

In German and Japanese with English subtitles
co-presented by the Goethe-Institut Toronto

German filmmaker Doris Dörrie mirrors the themes and plot of Tokyo Story in her 2008 film Cherry Blossoms. As in Tokyo Story, a mother, Trudi, dies unexpectedly after she and her husband Rudi pay a disappointing visit to her children and grandchildren in the city. However, Dörrie continues where Ozu leaves off, exploring Rudi’s regret over Trudi’s unfulfilled desires to study Butoh dance and visit Mount Fuji. Visiting his expat son in Tokyo, Rudi works through his grief in this deeply personal and affecting story of loss and redemption.
