An Autumn Afternoon 1962
Yasujiro Ozu's last film, An Autumn Afternoon, tells the story of a middle-class Japanese family facing a difficult dilemma.
It is a mature film populated by mature characters; children, so often the source of cuteness and comedy in Ozu's filmography, are nowhere to be seen. Meanwhile the plotting revolves around and arguably collates many of the director's familiar themes and devices: the relationships between family members, particularly parents and their children; the unmarried daughter as cause for the father's concern; the fear of loneliness inherent in the life of singleton or single parent.

A Hen in the Wind (1948) - this early Yasujiro Ozu's film tells the story of a soldier who returns home after the end of WW2 and discovers that his wife, a dressmaker, has had to sleep with another man for money to make ends meet.
