Within the framework of the aching melodrama the director daringly highlights the weight of tradition and duty that crushes the individual spirit.
... an indisputable masterpiece, a work of grace and simplicity that feels as timeless now as it was timely then.
An almost unwittingly political, (unusual for Ozu) as well as artistic, triumph.
