Film: Cherry Blossoms

Postby zengammon » Mon Jan 25, 2010 8:45 am

For those who love movies, I recommend:

"Cherry Blossoms," (a subtitled German film).

I was going to post a review for reference; but it's often the case with good, insightful films that the reviewers, critics and other experts miss the point. From my searching, that seems to be the case here.

In a nutshell, the film is about: in the face of Impermanence, learning to "dance with your shadow," so that you can live connected, fully and awake in This moment.

It's what many people would call a "slow film." Not for me.

Ok, here's a link for reference. Just don't believe what you read!
