A snapshot in the lives of a family going through rapid changes after several years of a peaceful existence. The story is focused on, but not confined to the youngest daughter. She is pressured by the family to finally get married to a man proposed by her boss but has ideas of her own, something almost unheard of in a traditional Japanese family of the time. The real charm of the film is that it p... read more

JUNE 15TH, 2016Question: Who is the best Japanese director? Kids: Hayao Miyazaki!! Adults: Akira Kurosawa!! Me: Yasujiru Ozu!! For me, Early Summer is one of my favorite Ozu's movies, and it's underrated. No movie can describe the family simply like this. We can't do anything when we are old.

Question: Who is the best Japanese director?

Kids: Hayao Miyazaki!!

Adults: Akira Kurosawa!!

Me: Yasujiru Ozu!!

For me, Early Summer is one of my favorite Ozu's movies, and it's underrated. No movie can describe the family simply like this. We can't do anything when we are old. When your friends get married, they are busy and they can't spend time for you. You're sad, that looks like you lost somebody. At that time, after World War II, many families started again. They were poor and they don't want their kids to be like that, so they hoped their kids get married with someone who was rich and has nice job. But that never happened and they cried.
