About the Movie

The last film by Yasujiro Ozu was also his final masterpiece, a gently heartbreaking story about a man’s dignified resignation to life’s shifting currents and society’s modernization. Though the widower Shuhei (frequent Ozu leading man Chishu Ryu) has been living comfortably for years with his grown daughter, a series of events leads him to accept and encourage her marriage and departure from their home. As elegantly composed and achingly tender as any of the Japanese master’s films, An Autumn Afternoon is one of cinema’s fondest farewells.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Such a completely realized example of the Ozu art that it seems impossible he did not intend it to be a kind of testament. – New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The fatal bargain of old age has rarely been observed as sharply as in Yasujiro Ozu's last film, from 1962. – Richard Brody, New Yorker, Dec 9, 2013

Fresh: Stylistically it's one of Ozu's purest, most elemental works: no camera movement, very little movement within the frames, and hardly any apparent narrative progression. – Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: While An Autumn Afternoon is in so many ways wholly typical of Ozu, it's also a very distinct variation, following beautifully from its predecessors. – Geoff Andrew, Sight and Sound, May 20, 2014

An Autumn Afternoon in Black and White??

Baffling that this is nearly the same story, with the same actor playing the lead role, but both are beyond worth seeing, but Late Spring is my pick due to the enchanting lead female character; I love her in Tokyo Story, and I love her here. Japan lost a great actress when she went into seclusion.
