If cats disappeared from the world, how would the world change?

..."If cats disappeared from the world, how would the world change? If I disappeared from the world, who on earth would mourn for me?"... "Sekai kara neko ga kietanara" is based on a popular novel of the same name and centers around a young postman (played by Sato Takeru) who learns that he has a terminal illness and is soon going to die. Then, a devil appears and offers to extend his life on the condition that one thing the devil picks will disappear from the world in exchange for him living one day longer. Things which seems not essential to life turn out to be more crucial than expected, as they affect the relationship he has with his ex-girlfriend, friend and family… As the story evolves, it reminds me to think about what is actually essential to life. Existence or essence? The story is meaningful, and Takeru is a great cast in a great film. He perfectly delivered the role with his talents. The film is also shot so beautifully that I had to add Hakodate, the filming location, to my list of must-visit cities in Japan.

Thought Provoking!

I have no words to describe how I felt after watching this movie. It made me think a lot about life,relationships,ambitions and regrets. This movie is not meant for people looking for light entertainment. Satoh Takeru has delivered mind blowing performance with dual role of the postman and the devil. A postman who unexpectedly comes to know that he is going to die due to a terminal illness.After losing one by one,items which he associates with important people in his life,he realizes that a death without people to mourn for,A life which leaves no memories on people and a life whose existence is erased,is of no use. Its OK to have a mixed past(good+bad) and not able to live long enough to fulfill dreams,yet life gives us something to cherish and be thankful for. A movie full of insight.A must see.

Wonderful and poetic

When I decided to watch the movie, I was expecting a more western-like fantasy movie. I was delightfully surprised with a deep emotional movie about life and how to come to terms with what it has to offer. Besides superb outdoor takings, wonderful acting conveying controlled feelings (I truly hate kitsch emotional outbursts, so common in the Hollywood era), the movie in a very quite but powerful way delivers an important message about how to deal with one's fate. Nice music too. I give it a nine out of ten, the deduction of one star due to the predictability of the ending.
