A film by Yasuhiro Ozu
The BFI presents three films by Japanese director Yasujiro Ozu
Melodrama is not a word usually associated with Ozu's quietly poetic oeuvre but his post-war Early Spring (1956) and Tokyo Twilight (1957) combine darker elements with his idiosyncratic style to create powerful dramas.
Also available for the first time on DVD in the UK is Ozu's rare silent Woman of Tokyo (1933), a tragic tale of misunderstood sacrifice. Woman of Tokyo features a newly commissioned score by Ed Hughes
- Newly commissioned score for Woman of Toyko by Ed Hughes
- Comprehensive booklet with newly commissioned essays and extensive film credits
