Product Information



導演︰小津安二郎
Director: Ozu Yasujiro

  這是小津安二郎第三次重拍自己的作品,藍本是1949年的《晚春》,不過這次父女的角色換上了母女,原節子在《晚》片裡演的是女兒,這次則改演母親。另外,片中她的亡夫的朋友,則取代了《晚》片裡為姪女兒找對象的姑媽。此外,兩片在格調上也有分別︰《晚》片較客觀和疏離,本片則有一股「輓歌似的哀傷氣氛」(當奴.烈治語)。故事說三個中年男人為逝去同窗的女兒找老公,女兒卻不忍捨下守寡的母親,把說親的事推卻。三個男人轉而安排給風采不減當年的母親扯紅線,對象是三人之中的鰥夫。女兒誤會是母親自己想再婚,大表反感,對母親不瞅不睬。最後母女冰釋前嫌,女兒出閣,母親仍舊獨守空房。

  The themes in Ozu's films are somewhat similar: they are usually about the Japanese family and the relations between older and younger generations. Thus, more than any other director, Ozu in various films works with similar materials and even remakes subjects particularly appealing to him Late Autumn, as such, can be said to be a variation of Late Spring (1949), with the substitution of a mother for a father trying to marry off her offspring. The story concerns with Ayako, a young girl who passes over marriage prospects to stand by her widowed mother, Akiko. When three middle-ages matchmakers who used to be close friends of Ayako's father, secretly plan for a remarriage of Akiko, relationship between the caring mother and the lovable daughter faces a real challenge …

Will wedding bells ring? Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
While "Late Autumn" is a relatively minor work in the canon of Ozu Yasujiro movies, this simply means that it is a quite good movie by anyone else's standards. "Late Autumn" is a prolonged meditation on marriage.

Three old friends meet for the reading of sutras in association with the anniversary of the death of Miwa, a mutual friend. The three friends decide amongst themselves that it is time for Miwa's 24 year old daughter to get married, so they set about finding prospects for her. Ultimately, the daughter, Ayako, rejects the suitors. She is reluctant to leave her mother, Akiko, alone. This portion of the movie lasts slightly over an hour and is rather slow.

The movie really picks ups steam when the three old friends decide that one of them, a widower, should marry Akiko so that Ayako then will feel free to marry. All three of the old friends have harbored a strong attraction to Akiko for many years. Once this new scheme is set in motion, comic misunderstandings abound and "Late Autumn" becomes very entertaining.

Will Akiko and Ayako marry? Watch this charmer to find out. As usual, the film is beautifully staged and shot. This late opus by master director Ozu is recommended highly.
