CineMasters: Yasujiro Ozu

Yasujiro Ozu (1903-1963) created a style of cinema that was unique and profound. With minimal camera movement, Ozu’s films proceed with deceptively simple means, observing his characters with a precision that gradually reveals deep emotion. His stories almost exclusively focus on the day-to-day lives of middle class Japanese families, and in the midst of this seeming mundanity Ozu conveys resonant truths about life and relationships.

The four films in this season represent a small slice of this brilliant filmmaker’s total body of work, but they serve as a perfect introduction to, and summation of, his genius. Each one is presented in a new 4K restoration, as part of the BFI’s ongoing Japan season.

Tokyo Story - 4K - 21 & 22 November

Early Spring - 4K - 28 November & 1 December

The Flavour of Green Tea Over Rice - 4K - 5 & 7 December

Early Summer – 4K - 12 & 15 December
