CINEMA, 35mm _ Ozu as formal as can be cares a lot about modernity in his late films. He reminded me here a lot of Tati (for exemple the geometry of "Playtime"). Unique filmmakers are a kind of family. And again, wonderful work with colors (small touches in a grey world, the way Tati did it). And this light music almost similar to the one played in "Mon oncle". Who would have thought France and Japan so close ?
Une tranquille vision douce-amère du quotidien et de ses répétitives habitudes, au pays des gens simples où la monotonie se lie avec les traditions, le manque et l'absence avec le temps qui (tré)passe. Une oeuvre lente, majestueusement limpide et d'une sublime richesse thématique et humaine... www.cinefiches.com
In the absence of a father, a daughter and her mother share their last moments together, as life is constantly pregnant of changes. While the wind rustles softly through the trees and the pond casts it shadows on the walls, life goes on like a late autumn night.
