Synopsis:
Only Trudi knows that her husband Rudi is suffering from a terminal illness. It is up to her 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 doctor's 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, fate intervenes.
A devastated Rudi has no idea what to do but learns from his daughter's girlfriend that Trudi's love for him had led her to forego the life that she had wanted to live. Rudi begins to see her with new eyes and embarks on his last journey - to Tokyo, in the midst of the cherry blossom festival, a celebration of beauty, impermanence and new beginnings...

Far fetched - Cherry Blossoms review by JT

Spoiler Alert
11/01/2019

The film had great family dynamics with strong characters, but the story line was unbelievable

Started quite well with a terminal illness diagnosis but as the story progressed this illness become unconvincing

A character described as "unadventurous" trekking to Japan and exploring the city on his own was ridiculous

Having spent his life in very rural Bavaria it would have been impossible for this elderly gent to survive in the metropolis of Tokyo

Did enjoy the scenery and insight into Japanese life which I find fascinating and his friendship with the girl dancer was touching but again did not resonate with the earlier character
