" There is definitely something in these Ozu's family portraits. I haven't seen too many of them but still I can say that Late Spring is some of the strongest ones. Family relationships are in the middle and handled very beautifully, as usual in Ozu's films. Setsuko Hara is loveable and the storyline is pure enjoyment."
