Wataru Hirayama outwardly liberal views on marriage are severely tested when his daughter declares that she is in love with a musician and is adamant to lead life her own way, instead of agreeing to an arranged marriage. Outwitted by his female relatives, Hirayama stubbornly refuses to admit defeat.
Before Good Morning and Late Autumn, the great Yasujirō Ozu made his first foray into color filmmaking with Equinox Flower: a highly poignant domestic drama that—with the director’s captivating subtlety and sensitivity—explores the generational differences with a family.
