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)
