  1. Warren Spratley's rating of the film Approach of Autumn

  2. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film Approach of Autumn

    As in AS A WIFE, AS A WOMAN, except with younger children, a sonata on the theme of that old Philip Larkin line. The adults are shallow and selfish, they ruin themselves and everyone else. Leave it to Naruse to make a movie with pint-sized protagonists filled with heartbreak, futility, and despair, with about as cheerless an ending as possible.
