Late Spring - A father and widower, concerned about his twentysomething daughter’s ostensibly dwindling marriage prospects, works to ensure that she find a partner, despite what losing her presence at home would mean to his own life. A perfect example of Ozu’s masterfully understated craft, Late Spring is as lovely as it is bittersweet. (with Chris Reed)
