Queensland Premiere.

This brand-new restoration of Yasujiro Ozu’s classic 1950 film weaves all the hallmarks of the master filmmakers work in a beautifully rendered mediation on family, life, and love. Presented at Cannes 2023. 

Setsuko (Kinuyo Tanaka), who is married to Mimura (So Yamamura), with no job and is drunk most of the time, follows tradition and is faithful to him. Her free-spirited and modernised sister Mariko (Hideko Takamine), tries to connect Setsuko with Hiroshi (Ken Uehara) who just came back from France and is Setsuko’s former lover.
