Ikiru, 1952 - ★★★★½

I was so immersed in the story that I almost failed to notice just how great the film was. From the wonderful opening introductions that seem just as relevant 60 years later, to the closing singing on the swing the film is full of great moments. The silence after visiting the doctors, the entrance to the night club are two more great moments. The final act was unexpected but works bringing together one of the most honest films about life and death.
