30 hand picked films. A new one every day
Une oeuvre rare du grand metteur en scène, projetée au festival du film muet de Pordenone (2005) d'une puissante acuité psychologique...
Made very quickly, this melodrama is a solid short film for Ozu. And while the story is a bit weak and surprisingly tragic, Ozu's direction makes it all work somehow.
I love when Ozu takes on the darker subjects within Japanese society. This is very melodramatic, especially in comparison with many of Ozu's other films. It's a very good but sad film.
God we need more Ozu released in this country...I need more Ozu!
Damn that ending was dark! This a great hidden gem in the Ozu collection!
