Yasujiro OZU – Japan – 1949


CHF 21.90 / EUR 20.40

Twenty-seven-year-old Noriko lives with her widowed father, a university professor, in a small house in the tranquil surroundings of northern Kamakura. He is completing a scientific manuscript, aided by his assistant, Hattori. Professor Sonomiya is concerned for his daughter's welfare, and one day suggests she marry Hattori. Noriko only laughs at his suggestion because she is quite happy with her life and knows that Hattori is already engaged. Her aunt Masa, the professor's sister, is the next person to try out her matchmaking skills, and she talks Noriko into meeting Mr Satake. Although Noriko quite likes him, she rejects all thoughts of marriage because she doesn't want to leave her father all alone. When she meets Professor Onodera, an old friend of her father, in a museum one day and he tells her that he has just remarried, Noriko can hardly disguise her dismay.
