Ozu was skeptical when Shochiku Studios forced him to shoot his first film in color in 1958, but the result was extraordinary. This very Ozu tale of a traditional father butting heads with his modern-minded daughter is as splendid and moving and aching as any of the Japanese master’s great works, with one beautiful composition after another.

Equinox Flower is part of the series Back By Popular Demand: Ozu. Click here for more info.
