Samma No Aji
1962 | Yasujiro Ozu
The final film by the great Japanese director whose 1953 Tokyo Story was recently voted the third best film of all time (see 10/27 & 28)is another magnificent work—and one of only six Ozu movies in color. The great Chishu Ryu plays a widower who marries off his daughter (despite her objections), leaving him alone except for his drinking buddies. This serene, autumnal work was in production when Ozu’s mother died; he had lived with her his whole life. Ozu himself died the following year.
