A widowed metro conductor, approaching retirement, lives with his beautiful grown daughter. The two are used to living alone, dependent solely on one another. But when a neighbor of theirs makes his long-harbored feelings for the girl known, their father-daughter relationship suddenly transforms.
Beloved art-house director Claire Denis brings her sensual, tender touch to this very contemporary version of Ozu’s classic masterpiece on familial bonds and the transience of life, Late Spring. Unforgettably shot by the great Agnès Godard and beautifully scored by the Tindersticks.
