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. Their kids cried too because they made parents felt disappointed. Sometime, you go out, look to the sky and see your life, your memory come back and we wish time never goes by so fast.
Well, you should spend time for this simple film, it's very great!!
