A widowed professor lives with his doting and dutiful daughter. He worries that she will never marry and move on, so pretends that he is himself considering a new marriage in order to prompt her to take seriously the suitors he introduces her to.

MUBI's take

Profoundly moving, this gorgeous and unparalleled classic from Yasujirō Ozu transcends its father-daughter drama to find a universal, and always inevitable tension between tradition and modernity. An absolute and indubitable masterpiece—as well as Ozu’s first film (of six!) with star Setsuko Hara.
