We gave it a B+

High concept with a heart, the Japanese After Life, about a post-death way station where the recently deceased choose a single memory to last them for eternity (which would you choose?), is gently thought-provoking and reassuring in its simplicity. Why shouldn’t heaven be, as it is for one man, the recollection of the breeze through a tram window on the last day of school? B+
