My guest for this month is Christa Mrgan, and she’s joined me to discuss the film I chose for her, the 1962 Japanese drama film An Autumn Afternoon
. You can follow the show on Twitter @cinemagadfly.
This was the last film that Yasujirō Ozu made, after a career that started in the silent era His most famous is probably Tokyo Story
, but he made 53 others, 19 of which are considered lost Christa’s husband is Neven Mrgan who was a guest on this podcast as well Chishū Ryū, who plays the lead here, was in 32 of Ozu’s 54 films Manga, J-pop, and Sushi are all examples of prominent cultural exports from Japan Toyko Story is based on Make Way For Tomorrow
, a depression era film by Leo McCarey
that touches on a lot of Ozu-type themes No one knows
who wrote Caro mio ben, but it was probably Tommaso Giordani Before this podcast,
