    • "The Greatest Film of All Time" - British Film Institute
    • “A MASTERPIECE. Minimalist cinema at its finest and most complex.”
      – Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
    • “ONE OF THE MOST APPROACHABLE AND MOVING OF ALL CINEMA’S MASTERPIECES!
      Ozu’s style – with its so-called ‘pillow shots’ (introductory shots of yet-unhabited rooms), low, static camera position, unhurried pacing and elaborately composed frames – has come to look, in an age of refreshed minimalism, more and more modern. Also, his main interest – how ordinary human emotions are expressed in the context of the changing modern family – has become ever more fundamental, relevant and richly rewarding.”

      – Wally Hammond, Time Out London
