Sanma No Aji (Autumn Afternoon) (1962) - Yasujiro Ozu


┬Chishu Ryu Shuhei Hirayama

Shuhei Hirayama is a widower with a 24-year old daughter. He gradually comes to realize that she should not be obliged to look after him for the rest of his life, and so he arranges a marriage for her.


Yet another Ozu classic that reworks themes of ageing and father/daughter relationships. However, one never tires of Ozu's slow tempo and subtle humour allowing the sheer simplicity of observation become a joy.
