A different side of Setsuko Hara
28 March 2021 | by nelsonhodgieSee all my reviews

Rather than the devoted daughter or relative she usually plays in Ozu movies here the great Setsuko Hara plays an edgier much more rebellious role as the free thinking English teacher at a girl's school. Although it might seem like a tempest in a teapot now .The plot centers around gossip and jealousy it nevertheless brings to focus some serious changes that were and still are occurring in Japan and it's attitude towards women's rights and freedoms in society. Excellent acting by all . Particularly the younger members of the cast who all seem very genuine.
