Dir Yasujirô Ozu
With Chishû Ryû, Shima Iwashita, Keiji Sada
Yasujirô Ozu’s final film is a gentle portrait of an ageing widower as he attempts to cope with his married and extravagant son and take responsibility for his daughter, who is committed to caring for him rather than pursuing her own happiness and marriage. It’s a humorous yet also deeply moving drama from one of the world’s greatest film directors.
Free for over-60s (booking by phone or in person only), otherwise normal matinee price.
