A really beautiful and thoughtful film. The cinematography is rolling, relaxing, and quite lovely, and the relationships portrayed on-screen feel wistful and sentimental. The movie sort of put me in a trance and it was a really wonderful viewing experience.

Both intensely personal and universal, “Late Spring” is the second Ozu film I watched, and my favorite of his.
