Today I finished watching Japanese movie "Departures". I downloaded the movie from pirate bay a few days ago. The problem with pirate bay is that there are not many Asian movies on it. If anybody knows where to download Chinese and Japanese and Korean movies, please let me know.

It won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 2009, and I must say it's pretty damn good. The protagonist is a "encoffiner" whose job is to dress up dead people before they are put into a coffin and cremated. Sounds like an odd job at first, but he learns a lot about himself and his relationships with other people from doing the job. You may ask, how does he learn by dressing up dead bodies? I won't talk too much about the story here because I think many of you haven't seen the movie yet.
