For many directors, a tale of adultery would be an opportunity for sleaze and fireworks. For Ozu, it's the excuse for another tale of redemption and the search for meaning in a humdrum world. Great film.

Ozu turns a mundane, supposedly boring, everyday family interaction into an interesting film.

Ozu or the happy incommunicability. Being there and not asking more. Like the sad peace of a willow tree.

It's me. I just don't care for Japanese movies. Between the dubbing, cultural differences, and Japanese language, I just can't get into the movies. I'm sure what everyone says about this being a brilliant movie is true. But for me, I found it boring and somewhat irritating.
