Ozu was skeptical when Shochiku Studios forced him to shoot his first film in color in 1958, but the result is a film of extraordinary loveliness, the beginning of Ozu’s late- career blossoming as a sublimely sensitive colorist. This tale of a traditional father butting heads with his modern-minded daughter—a subject near and dear to the director—is achingly moving, with each composition a small marvel of balance and emotional insight, and some of the most exquisite of Ozu’s patented “pillow shots.”
