An Autumn Afternoon
Now digitally restored, An Autumn Afternoon, the final film by the great Japanese director Yasujiro Ozu is one of his most touching works and, thanks to Yuharu Atsuta’s ravishing camerawork, one of his most beautiful.
Perhaps the most personal of Ozu’s treatments of a theme evidently close to his heart, this finds both elderly widower Shuhei Hirayama (the peerless Chishu Ryu) and his daughter Michiko (Shima Iwashita) entertaining decidedly mixed emotions about the prospect of her getting married and leaving her father to fend for himself.
Released today An Autumn Afternoon is showing at BFI Southbank from May 16 – early June. Please visit the BFI website for a full list of screenings: bit.ly/1nN4Iis
