[VIDEO ESSAY] Yasujir˘ Ozu's beloved masterpiece of postwar Japanese cinema speaks to audiences from all backgrounds because of the cross-generational familial truths that the prolific director/co-writer lovingly metes out.
Ozu's long shots, knee-high camera placement, and collapsed perspective -- as gorgeous and unsettling as a CÚzanne -- gather power over the duration, but time itself is the master's most potent weapon.
Newcomers to Ozu must be prepared for a rigidly controlled work with no mobile-camera shots. This style elegantly frames the delicate performances, which in turn do justice to the wisdom and compassion of Ozu's view of life.
