Influential Japanese auteur Yasujiro Ozu was the master of subtle elegant films that pack a bittersweet emotional punch. Made during his prime in the early 1950s, this keenly perceptive relationship drama is the study of a man and woman whose marriage is hanging by a thread. She is tired of his stick-in-the-mud ways, their dull, predictable existence; he chafes at her Western pretensions. Maybe it's time for a change. Also a frank look at the practise of arranged marriage, Ozu originally wrote the story in 1940 but was forbidden by the military to make it.
