Product Overview

One of the most powerful of Yasujiro Ozu's family portraits, Late Spring tells the story of a widowed father who feels compelled to marry off his beloved only daughter. Loyal Ozu players Chishu Ryu and Setsuko Hara command this poignant tale of love and loss in postwar Japan, which remains as potent today as ever- almost by itself justifying Ozu's inclusion in the pantheon of cinema's greatest directors.

ReviewSource DVD Times
Review The premise of "Late Spring" couldn't be any simpler and the manner in which it is presented could hardly be more transparent Ð simple expository and formal dialogue, functional scenes, static shots and little in the way of expressive facial gestures Ð yet Ozu nevertheless manages to create a spellbinding situation devoid of contrivance, filled with a wealth of emotions that are instantly recognisable and identifiable.

ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review So much happens out of sight in the film, implied but not shown. Noriko smiles but is not happy. Her father passively accepts what he hates is happening. The aunt is complacent, implacable, maddening. She gets her way. It is universally believed, just as in a Jane Austen novel, that a woman of a certain age is in want of a husband. "Late Spring" is a film about two people who desperately do not believe this, and about how they are undone by their tact, their concern for each other, and their need to make others comfortable by seeming to agree with them.
