I feel thankful for seeing this movie, which portrays in such detail about the life of a real man facing death.
There are many fictional movies of a terminal cancer patient. "Ikiru" of Kurosawa Akira is a classic one. The movie "My Life Without Me" had the same motif with "Ending Note". But this "Ending Note" is a documentary, not a fiction.
I was moved by the protagonist who faces his own death straight. I could see great love to his daughter, who wants to record her father's last stage of life until death. The daughter who shot the movie may be a Catholic Christian. In Christianity, death is not defeat but glorious return to heaven. I could see her such belief through the movie. However, what keeps him from despair is not the dogma, but the strong tie with his family. The Bible says "There is no fear in love". In his case, it seems his love to wife, to children and to grandchildren has made him overcome the fear on his own death.
By the way, I envy him that so many videos had been left since his young age. Even at the farewell party of his career, his daughter went there to record the video. What a blessed life it was!
