Newly restored in stunning 4K, Yasujiro Ozu’s beautiful domestic drama is a piercing portrait of a marriage coming quietly undone in post-war Tokyo.

Reportedly one of Ozu’s own personal favourites, this exquisite domestic drama charts a marital crisis, but does so with a wonderfully sprightly comic touch. A couple’s relationship is strained as the snobbish, city-raised wife increasingly bristles at her husband’s provincial ways, but a visit from their headstrong niece offers the chance of reconciliation. One of Ozu’s funniest and most tender films.

Screening as part of our CineMasters: Yasujiro Ozu season.
