Ozu, Yasujiro - Late Autumn/A Mother Should Be Love (Uk Import)
Releasedatum: 23 mei 2011
In director Yasujiro Ozu's drama LATE AUTUMN (AKIBIYORI), a still-beautiful widow has a daughter who is sufficiently past the favored age for marriage to be in danger of becoming an old maid according to the norms of Japanese culture. Three mature men, friends of the family, get together to discuss the widow and her problem daughter. Despite the fact that they each would like to marry the mother, they agree that one of them should make the sacrifice of marrying the daughter. They discuss their marriage idea with the mother, not the daughter (as is customary). Somehow, the girl hears of it, and is infuriated. She has said all along that though she wants to get married someday, she wants to remain single for some time longer. Now she is angry enough to threaten to accept the family friend's suit simply out of spite. Also included in this release is Ozu's rare 1933 film A MOTHER SHOULD BE LOVED (HAKA O KOWAZUYA).
