Yasujiro Ozu

Out of print

The films of Yasujiro Ozu are solemn and serious, and yet their beauty produces an atmosphere of mourning and gentle enjoyment in the face of fleeting, transient things. The old man in Tokyo Story sits in silence, he watches the ships at sea and the mountains in the clear light of the afternoon: a painful, but almost serene melancholy.
