In a rapidly westernizing Japan, the arranged marriage of cosmopolitan Takeo and her reliable but humdrum hubby drifts into routine and mundanity. Sneaking off for a weekend getaway, Takeo must come to terms with her true needs. With his characteristically humane touch, Ozu elevates this moving character study into a meditation on marriage and fulfillment.
Shown in conjunction with the film course Ozu and the Crucible of Modernity, this screening will be introduced by the course's instructor, Paul Wright, Ph.D.
