導演︰小津安二郎
Director: Ozu Yasujiro

  本片是小津安二郎的首部彩色電影,已盡顯小津對顏色運用的考究與心思。一個簡單而緊湊的女兒出嫁故事,矛盾的父親平山講一套做一套:人家的女兒自由戀愛好,自己的就得依從父母的選擇。熱熱鬧鬧穿插幾段父女或母女的故事,對比著平山的頑固更叫人啼笑皆非。小津的處理手法幽默,可算是他最平易近人的動人作品,但平山難平的感受卻很真實得很悲涼。一眾當時得令的大明星擔演母親與女兒的角色,光看演技已是樂事。

  At the wedding reception of an old friend is daughter, Hirayama congratulates the younger generation on the freedom to choose their partners. However, at the post-wedding drinks, he agrees to let his friends find a suitable match for his daughter Setsuko. Hirayama intercedes on behalf of two young women who defy their parents plans for an arranged marriage, but when Setsuko is boyfriend makes a surprise call to ask for her hand, he is furious and initially refused to attend the ceremony. However, while staying at an inn in Kyoto, he is persuaded by the owner is daughter to get on a train to see Setsuko in her new home in Okayama.

Another Ozu gem Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
"Equinox Flower" is a tale of culture clash, but, while the stakes in the clash are very high, it is presented in the typically subdued Ozu Yasujiro style. A father believes it is time for his eldest daughter to get married. He initiates the process of finding an arranged marriage partner, but his daughter has other ideas. Much to the father's surprise, she has decided to marry a man whom her parents had not met. The father is furious; he is rude to the young man when he shows up at their house. And he refuses to attend the wedding.

Is the family now permanently broken? That's what this film is about on the surface. At a deeper level, this excellent movie is about a confrontation between the patriarchal pre-war Japanese culture that was based on loyalty, honor, and obedience and the Westernized post-war Japanese culture in which young people may make their own choices. The subtle way in which this clash is resolved is a beautiful thing to see.

Speaking of a beautiful thing to see, "Equinox Flower" is a visual delight. Each frame of the film is elegantly composed and Ozu's use of color is splendid. I recommend this rich tale of family conflict very, very highly.
