An Autumn Afternoon
Dir. Yasujiro Ozu (1962). The Japanese masters final movie, another tale of a single parent marrying off a diffident daughter, sums up most of late career concerns. The father, played by Ozu regular Chishu Ryu, is a former World War II naval officer; his other children are disconcertingly westernized; his old teacher is an unhappy alcoholic. The movie is a comedy and the images are often stunningly beautiful.
Fridays-Sundays, 11 a.m. Starts: Nov. 5. Continues through Nov. 7, 2010
