A father worries that his daughter's devotion to him is ruining her chance for marriage in Yasujiro Ozu's delicate classic drama. Setsuko Hara plays the young woman, who at 27 is almost past marrying age, but she is content with her life caring for her widowed dad Chisu Ryu, even turning down a suitor's proposal. Ryu is happy with the arrangement, too, but he wants to do what is right for his daughter. With pitch-perfect performances and gorgeous visuals, this moving domestic drama creates an indelible portrait of Japanese family life in the immediate postwar era.
