Ozu’s hugely influential and award-winning Late Spring is a tender meditation on family politics, sacrifice and the status quo. Noriko and her father, Professor Somiya live together in perfect harmony, but old certainties are put at risk when an interfering aunt raises the question of marriage. Introducing Ozu’s popular Noriko character, Late Spring poignantly examines the gradual compromise between modernity and tradition.
