Ozu takes a very pedestrian approach, as he does with most of his films. The result is a film that is slow-paced, but allows you to focus more on the daily life interactions of the characters. More than his other films, I think the slower pace of the film does justice to the theme of growing older and allows the viewer to muse more over the subject.

Yasujiro Ozu is one of those directors whose movies are so measured and sedate that it's hard to explain to someone why they should watch them. His camera is static and low to the ground. He reuses the same actors. Many of his movie titles are so similar that it's difficult to recall which is which--Late Spring, Early Autumn, An Autumn Afternoon. But Ozu's best movies create a world that draws you in and makes you curious, wanting to see more. This bittersweet classic is one of Ozu's best. Highly recommended--but be patient!

I liked the daughter in law in this movie perhaps, but that's about it. I was kind of bored with Ozu. Most people will think it's terrible, but I really wasn't impressed with him.

Japan is probably one of the few countries in the world today that... not only is not ashamed of its own history, but also tries to save it from be forgotten. 50 years ago, in an very intimate way, personal and unique, Ozu tells you all this, troughout the eyes of an old couple, that seems to want to fit in the new era, without hurting the new generation feelings. Awesome photography, perfect acting and finest direction, in what is considered by many, as the best japanese movie ever.
