Critic Reviews for The Departure
A film that explores life's toughest and most transcendent moments with tenderness, honesty and care.
This is a film that manages to be simple yet thought-provoking, sad yet comforting, and anguished yet tranquil. In short, a work of art.
Lana Wilson's documentary portrait of [Buddhist priest] Nemoto triumphs as a story but stumbles as a movie.
Unfailingly sensitive about issues of selflessness and suffering, "The Departure" is in a way its own work of meditation, on the pressures of living up to the turbulent promise of life's expected length.
In its poetic portrait of a man whose quest to help others has cost him dearly both emotionally and physically, The Departure proves quietly profound.
