Luminous in its freedom from the sentimentality or the satire that so often obscure an artist s vision of normal living.
It ennobles the cinema. It says, yes, a movie can help us make small steps against our imperfections.
Ozu doesn t sentimentalize or condemn; he merely observes human nature with calm and clarity.
The way Ozu builds up emotional empathy for a sense of disappointment in its various characters is where his mastery lies.
This remains one of the most approachable and moving of all cinema s masterpieces.
