Subject: Cherry Blossoms - Hanami

I saw Cherry Blossoms at the recent Chicago Filmfestival, and now I hope this limited release isn't too limited.
This film deserves a wide audience, it is beautifully written, filmed and acted! Don't forget to bring some hankies with you, as you will need them - and a mobile for phoning family members you haven't spoken with for a while, afterwards.
It got rave reviews in Germany, and won lots af prestigious awards there, and it deserves all of them!
