Ozu: Filmada com mestria e deslumbramento, a complacência amarga da torpe subalternidade da mulher na cultura japonesa.
Sobre o filme
"One of the best two or three films Ozu ever made. "
"Yasujiro Ozu's 1949 film inaugurated his majestic late period: it's here that he decisively renounces melodrama (and, indeed, most surface action of any kind) and lets his camera settle into the still, long-take contemplation. "
"Nevertheless, this is a remarkable, piercing film, and central to an understanding of Ozu's work. "
"Ozu's characters don't seek ecstasy, not because they are afraid of it but because they are brave enough to accept compromise. "
