Saving 10,000 - the war on suicide in Japan

This has already been on my FB page, so apologise to anyone getting the information for a second time.
This is a documentary made by an Irishman in Tokyo.  It looks at the reasons behind Japan's disturbingly high suicide rate. Contrary to western ideas, though it is romanticised,  it doesn't tend to be viewed as a glorious or honorable way to die.

It's a little under an hour and for anyone with an interest in the topic, I recommend it highly.
