Shinichirô Mikami in Late Ozu: Late Autumn

Late Ozu: Late Autumn

1963 NR

Reluctant to marry and leave her widowed mother, Akiko Miwa (Setsuko Hara), all alone, a dutiful daughter (Yôko Tsukasa) resists selecting a suitor. But her late father's friends, who are eager to see both women happy, insist on stepping in to play matchmaker. Acclaimed director Yasujiro Ozu explores the flipside of the traditional mother-daughter bond in this touching family comedy set in postwar Japan.
