An Autumn Afternoon

Friday, September 11 - Sunday, September 13, 2015

DCP projection

Yasujiro Ozu’s final film was also his final masterpiece, the gently heartbreaking story of a man’s dignified resignation to both life’s ever-shifting currents and society’s gradual modernization. Though widower Shuhei Hirayama (Ozu’s frequent leading man Chishu Ryu) has been living comfortably for years with his grown daughter, a series of events leads him to accept and encourage her marriage and departure. As elegantly composed and achingly tender as any of the Japanese master’s films, AN AUTUMN AFTERNOON (Sanma no aji) is one of cinema’s fondest farewells. – Janus Films
