The film critic David Bordwell refers to Ozu's style as 'calm'; perhaps another word might be 'meditative'? I'm interested to see what you thought of the film, its style and content.


Whilst our screening was rudely interrupted by hardware failure, I hope those that came got enough of a taste of this great film to pass comment on it. For all the clunky acting, loss of focus and inability to edit concisely, this is (I think) a great film. What do you think>
