1949. Japan. Directed by Yasujiro Ozu. With Chishu Ryu, Setsuko Hara, Haruko Sugimura, Jun Usami. The West came late to discovering Ozu, whose 108th birthday falls on December 11. This story about the loving yet tension-filled relationship of a father and daughter (Ryu and Hara) transcends melodrama to carry the emotional clout of the best of Chaplin or Ford. In Japanese; English subtitles. 108 min.
