Equinox Flower


Dir. Yasujiro Ozu (1958).
Intoxicated yet mellow, Equinox Flower is doubly progressive. Ozu’s first color film is also his first to side with modern daughters against their traditional fathers as a befuddled patriarch (played by an aging romantic star Shin Saburi) vainly attempts to enforce old notions of love and marriage in the brave new, multi-hued world of postwar Japan.
