I have seen many visually beautiful and emotionally moving films, but not as many recently. An Autumn Afternoon is one of those primary examples. Meditative in its pacing it is, but it is never dull.

View all An Autumn Afternoon reviews
In the wake of his wife's death, aging Shuhei Hirayama struggles to maintain balanced relationships with his three children. He tends to spoil his eldest, the happily married Kazuo, who spends more of his father's money than his own. The middle child, 24-year-old Michiko, is looking for love herself, but feels obligated to run Shuhei's household and care for his youngest child, teenaged Koichi, who can't connect with his father.

"12.2.2023 Maanläheisen rehellinen, pyyteetön ja syvää, ainoastaan elämänkokemuksen kautta hankittavissa olevaa viisautta ja ymmärräystä henkivä, muotokieleltään täydellinen elokuva, Ozun arvon mukainen joutsenlaulu. Syksyinen iltapäivä muistuttaa minua hieman toisesta suuresta, lähes tarkalleen samaan aikaan päivänvalon nähneestä, vuoria liikuttavasta draamasta, jossa ei niin ikään tapahdu yhtään mitään, eli Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusan kirjoittamasta ja sittemmin Vis"

“I have seen many visually beautiful and emotionally moving films, but not as many recently. An Autumn Afternoon is one of those primary examples. Meditative in its pacing it is, but it is never dull. How everything is made and written really makes an interesting and very rewarding experience indeed. It is incredibly well made to start off with, the camera is kept at low angles and is still, but for me this allowed me to explore and really admire the scenery and the framing which are very elegantly done. Kojan Siato's score is one of those soothing and unobtrusive scores that helps the audience to connect with An Autumn Afternoon's gentle mood. How An Autum Afternoon is written is also exceptional, as well as the gentle tone, the story has this great warmth, wisdom and humanity. As well as ” read more

"24.12. Yasujiro Ozun viimeisessä elokuvassa ikääntyvä mies harmittelee, kun ei ole hankkinut omalle tyttärelleen aviomiestä. Likaisten perverssien tekemien naimakauppojen sijaan kyseessä on humaani kuvaus hyvää tahtovista ihmisistä, jotka elävät vanhoillisten käsitysten maailmassa. Tavallaan edistystä edustava päähenkilö saa ympärillään olevat kärsimään sillä, ettei hän toimi niin kuin pitäisi. Tietynlaiseen maailmankuvaan oppineet hahmot kun odottavat, että jotkin as"
