A theatrical troupe visits a provincial town where the leading actor discovers his former mistress and illegitimate son. A late (1959) color picture by Yasujiro Ozu, author of Tokyo Story and 50 other films that have led his countrymen to describe him as “the most Japanese” of Japanese directors. His spare, slow-moving films are not for all tastes, but once the rhythms are accepted, Ozu's work offers a unique emotional experience. In Japanese with subtitles. 119 min.
