i am trying to remember the name of a japanese movie i think is about 5 years old. the premise was that when you die, you must choose one memory from your life to accompany you to the afterlife. there was a group of recently dead who were temporarily housed in what seemed to be an old hospital or some such institution where they were assigned a counselor to help choose the memory and then film it using old makeshift props and sets, like something from community theater at best. once the memory was filmed and viewed they were able to pass on to the afterlife. this movie has stuck with me for so long but i can't remember the name of it and i'd love to see it again. anyone?

I have low hopes for V for Vendetta, since Alan Moore comic adaptations to film haven't been good so far, and he's disowned this one. The Wachowsis have some balls, though--this is about a terrorist blowing up buildings in a near-futuristic but Thatcher-like England. It's a really unsettling comic.
