How it got on our Netflix queue I have no idea. The same way books jump off the shelves into one's hands in a library or bookstore, perhaps.But we watched it and were overwhelmed: a German film called Cherry Blossoms (Kirschblute?), made by German woman film director, novelist, intellectual Doris Dorrie. About what?About wives and husbands, parents and children, men and women, Germany and Japan, life and death, laughter and tears, and BEAUTY. The beauty of cherry blossoms, the beauty of evanescence, the beauty of love. About Butoh, Mt. Fuji, about transformation in so many different ways...Extraordinary. And simple, really. A Simple Story.
