Meer informatie over de leeftijdclassificaties vind je hier
1960s drama from director Yasujirô Ozu following the tender story of a widower with a young daughter. Japanese social mores dictate that it is the responsibility of Michiko (Shima Iwashita), in the absence of her mother, to take care of her father, Shuhei (Chishû Ryû), for the rest of his life. Shuhei, however, shuns this course of action and instead arranges a marriage for his highly disinclined daughter.

Most of Ozu's films are quiet and slow-paced, but for some reason I found this more transcendental and melancholic than his others - perhaps because it came so late in his career. There's a distinct world-weariness to the central characters and a sense of mortality that's less present, in my view, in his earlier films. It makes for quite a mature and rewarding experience to watch.
The world Ozu conjures from his usual actors, and also using the same studio props as in other movies: the office, the corridor, the home etc, is quickly drawing the wiever inside. I become involved in the social play, problems and relations and they make me forget that the same actors and setups are re-used. This world is also very patriarchal: the men have their (more or less important) jobs and they meet every night at bars for sake and whiskey, discussing how to manage their families. But at the same time, Ozu uses strong women who sometimes put fathers and brothers in their place and make fun of them. Anyway, the insights in a different culture is fascinating.
The picture of this Blu-Ray is amazing, of course it will never look like a new film with sharpness and so on. But it looks sharp enough and with nice film grain, and the subtle colors used in early colour films. If you have the slightest interest in Japanese film, or in Japan, or in cinema in general, you should watch this.
