Cherry Blossoms
Available on Prime Video
Only Trudi knows that her husband Rudi is suffering from a terminal illness. It is up to her to decide to tell him or not. The doctor suggests that they do something together, perhaps something they were long planning to do ... Trudi decides not to tell her husband about the gravity of his illness and to follow the doctors advice. She convinces Rudi to visit their children and grandchildren in Berlin. But once they arrive, they realize that their children are so busy with their own lives that they have no time for them. Then, suddenly, Trudi dies. Rudi is devastated and has no idea what to do next. From his daughters girlfriend he learns that Trudis love for him had led her to forego the life that she had wanted to live. He begins to see her with new eyes and vows to make up for her lost life. And so he embarks on his last journey to Tokyo, in the midst of the cherry blossom festival, a celebration of beauty, impermanence and new beginnings. One of Germanys foremost filmmakers ("Men, Me and Him", "Am I Beautiful", "Enlightenment Guaranteed", and "How to Cook Your Life"), multiple award-winning director Doris Dorrie reconfirms her exceptional talent with this tender, emotionally intense and profoundly moving story of marital love.
