When nostalgia about college days inspires a group of middle-aged businessmen to match-make for a widow, played by Setsuko Hara (Tokyo Story), and her daughter they have no idea of the strife their careless interference will cause. Late Autumn’s examination of familial upheaval moves effortlessly from comedy to pathos and is amongst Ozu’s finest post-war films. Included here is Ozu’s moving silent drama A Mother Should be Loved (1934).
