Yasujiro Ozu's last film, made in 1962, is a study of an old man's loneliness as he prepares to marry off his only daughter. Stylistically it's one of Ozu's purest, most elemental works: no camera movement, very little movement within the frames, and hardly any apparent narrative progression. Appreciating Ozu is a matter of temperament—for some, his films are unbearably dull; for others, they are works of a unique serenity and beauty. In Japanese with subtitles. 113 min.
