  • 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
