This family drama, firmly in the Ozu tradition, is set over 24 hours of an anniversary gathering to commemorate a death. The three generations of the family exchange gossip and memories, grievances and resentments, without great drama, but all the more truthfully. The result is a film of great delicacy, warmth, humour and humanity that absorbs you totally into its world and resonates long after the moving final scenes. In Japanese with subtitles
