    Article about Ozu by filmmaker Jim Jarmusch
A modernized Japanese woman bristles against the traditional demands of her family in the post-war melodrama "Early Summer" (1951). The Criterion Collection presents one of director Yasujiro Ozu's most enduring works, a charming character study of a beautiful young office worker who refuses marriage for a life as a happily independent woman. Her very Western ideas aren't easily accepted by the loved ones, however, who wish to marry her off to an older man.
