Ostensibly a snapshot of postwar Japan in the midst of profound cultural change, it is the movie's painful depiction of familial disintegration that remains universal today.

Luminous in its freedom from the sentimentality or the satire that so often obscure an artist's vision of normal living.

It ennobles the cinema. It says, yes, a movie can help us make small steps against our imperfections.

Ozu has made a film as simple in form and complex in nature as life itself. Here, every viewer is cast as a tourist, and yet will feel right at home.
