Film Series: An Autumn Afternoon

1962. Japan. Dir: Yasujir? Ozu. With Chish? Ry?. 133 min.

An aging father realizes he must find a husband for his grown daughter in Ozu’s final variant on his career-long obsession with intergenerational friction. Dejected words, glances, and gestures pierce the quiet surfaces of life as the revered director’s swan song becomes a gentle symphony of emotion and heartbreak composed with a signature palette of color, light, and shadow.
