Late Autumn

Yasujiro Ozu’s penultimate film from 1960. The term “masterpiece” should not be used in an inflationary way, but quite a number of Ozu’s films fall into that category, and this late opus definitely is a top drawer affair. A sublime story around Ozu’s central theme of relations within families. In a nutshell: it is as Anti- Hollywood as possible, everything is discreet, camera movement reduced ( in the typical somewhat static Ozu style ), and the film exudes an endearing humanity.
Right now it is on You Tube, watch it before it’s taken off ( and it will be eventually ).
