An Autumn Afternoon

1962 / 112min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: YASUJIRO OZU

CAST: CHISHU RYU, SHIMA IWASHITA, KEIJI SATA

Ozu’s gorgeous 53rd and final feature is a return to a favorite theme, the poignant comedy of marriage, with beloved regular Chishu Ryu as a father giving away his daughter and preparing for another, final goodbye. Good Morning’s satire of creeping consumerism has become more bitter here, the feeling of incoming winter chill is sharper, the entire project imbued with a tang of regret—incidentally, the title literally translates to “The Taste of Autumn Mackerel.”

An Autumn Afternoon is part of the series Back By Popular Demand: Ozu. Click here for more info.
