Late Spring, Blu-ray


Yasujiro Ozu directs this intimate family portrait telling the story of widowed college professor Somiya (Chishu Ryu), who must face the inevitability that his only daughter, 27-year-old Noriko (Setsuko Hara), will soon be married off.

Noriko, however, sees no reason to disrupt the harmony of the family home and repeatedly insists that marriage is not for her.

Yet the social pressure continues to build, and eventually Somiya tricks his daughter into marrying by informing her that he is planning to remarry himself.
