Chishû Ryû, Chieko Higashiyama

An elderly couple come to the city to visit their family. Their children are busy, and their parents upset their routines. In a quiet way, without anyone admitting it, the visit is not a success. Perfectly capturing life in post-war Japan, where old and new ways sit uncomfortably together, this profound and stirring evocation of generational conflict is a complex and utterly beautiful masterpiece. This is a tale from the delicate hand of Ozu, whose incisive, often humorous and incisive perspective on everyday life is tinged with melancholy. 

Screening as part of BFI Japan 2021: 100 years of Japanese Cinema, a UK-wide film season supported by National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network.
