Wanting More Ozu
1 January 2004 | by (Philadelphia, PA, USA) – See all my reviews

While in college at The University Of Illinois I was fortunate enough to view several Ozu films, this being one of them. I took one film class and this director struck me as having a sensibility about life and the simple aspects of it that are often unnoticed by other directors. I loved the pace (patient but not overly slow) of this film and the attention to detail. Where as Kurosawa's better known films seem to deal with larger themes, war, societal strife, etc, Ozu seems to be more concerned with the family unit and the sensitive interpersonal relationships that we all go through. His astute focus on emotion both from his actors and as seen through his use of the camera is a joy to watch and I only hope that more of his films become available on DVD.
