Marriage à la Ozu
Japan | 1957 | Yasujiro Ozu
Chishu Ryu, Setsuko Hara, and Isuzu Yamada star in Ozu’s intense family saga, one of his longest, harshest, and most melodramatic films, in which his usual gentleness seems to give way to bitterness. The movie focuses on two grown daughters—one unhappily married with a child, the other in an affair that leaves her pregnant—who are living with their single father. Their sad lives are further shattered by stunning revelations about their mother. “One of the most radical departures of a distinguished career.” –Time Out Film Guide.
