Early Summer / What Did The Lady Forget Blu-Ray + DVD
When family, friends and colleagues pressure Noriko - played with enigmatic brilliance by Setsuko Hara (Tokyo Story, Late Spring) - to marry they provoke a surprising decision with wide-reaching consequences. A wonderfully poised ensemble work, Yasujiro Ozu's Early Summer presents the intricacies and contradictions of the three generations who have lived through the end of an era and are looking towards the new. Also included here is Ozu's comic pre-war feature, What Did the Lady Forget? which plays with the themes of emasculation and feminine assertion. By escaping the strictures of his tyrannical wife, browbeaten Professor Komiya falls into the clutches of his audacious niece, Setsuko.
