Ozu’s deep farewell bow united him one last time with actor Chishū Ryū—they made a staggering 50 movies together. Their shared cinematic journey concludes with this beautifully composed and contemplative character study of a widower who must not only accept change but become its agent, committing to marrying off his daughter Shima Iwashita even if that results in an empty nest.
