March 19th, Thursday Movie: Cherry Blossoms Meetup Time: 7:00pm Movie Showtime: 7:15pm Landmark's Ken Cinema 4061 Adams Avenue San Diego, CA 92116 (619)[masked] Host: Eric aka Eric31 (619)[masked] (Mobile) [masked] Another quick trip back to the Ken Cinema for the latest offering from popular German director Doris Dorrie.
Synopsis: One of Germany's foremost filmmakers, Doris Dörrie (Men, Enlightenment Guaranteed, How To Cook Your Life), writes and directs this tender, emotionally intense and profoundly moving story of marital love. Trudi (Hannelore Elsner) and Rudi (Elmar Wepper) are an affectionate, long-married couple whose children have grown up and moved away. When Trudi learns that her husband is terminally ill, she keeps it from him, and urges him to see more of life and visit their son who lives in Japan. This beautiful film culminates in a pilgrimage to Mount Fuji in the midst of the cherry blossom festival, a celebration of beauty, impermanence and new beginnings. Winner of the Golden Space Needle Award for Best Film at the Seattle International Film Festival. (Partially subtitled)

    Lovely, unusual movie, I was touched by the children's unknowingness of their parents, and reminded of what a mistake it is to think we have all the time in the world with those we love. That's why we go to arthouse movies!!

    It was a wonderful film about the fleeting time we have in this world. The indiffernce most show to it and the release of the emotion when you embrace the knowledge of its impermance. The group was intelligent, articulate and fun to be around and helped unveil the layers of meaning behind the film. Eric is the perfect host for these events. Our own Turner Classics announcer. :)

    I didn't get to spend much time with the other folks; ran into an old friend just across the street on the way there, and was blown away by the movie, so I skulked out to go home and get teary again. It touched so many emotional centers in me!
