Tokyo Story director Yasujiro Ozu's hugely influential and award-winning masterpiece, Late Spring, is a tender meditation on family politics, sacrifice and the status quo. Noriko (Setsuko Hara) and her father, Professor Somiya (Chishu Ryu) live together in perfect harmony, but old certainties are put at risk when an interfering aunt raises the question of marriage. Introducing Ozu s popular Noriko character, Late Spring poignantly examines the gradual compromise between modernity and tradition and is now available for the first time on Blu-ray from the BFI.

'Late Spring' is one of the most sensitive and beautiful films ever made. It's not so much the story as the way the characters are portrayed, the superb understatement of love that says it all. It appeals because these are the sentiments that give meaning to our existence and which are so missing from the often crass way we undermine everything beautiful today.
