Extremely superficial character analysis by all commentators. I was surprised to learn that the director of the most rigidly choreographed dramas in the canon was a jovial fellow with a proclivity for drink. Ozu brooked no criticism when directing and micro-managed all aspects of his films, down to the slightest gesture of the hand or inflection of speech.
This is a great documentary about the greatest director who ever lived. It was interesting to see how Ozu was a strong filmmaker even in his early days. The film made me want to watch all of Ozu's films even more. I can't wait to continue experiencing the works of this Japanese master.
