    This was beautifully filmed. Fantastic use of colour with some really striking scenes, especially the argument in the rain. A very slow and restrained film, it requires a bit of patience to slog through, but it's worth watching. 5 years 3 months ago

    Like many of Ozu's films, it's a slow, beautifully filmed family drama. The use of color and the subtle visual metaphors make it a masterpiece of Japanese cinema; a truly great drama. 4 years 10 months ago
