to keep my sanity.
definitely "cinta satu malam"
no, but seriously.
this movie portrayed a good quality of intimate conversations for two individuals that getting to know each other. not just knowing the face and name, but also the souls, mind and thoughts. i enjoyed this so much since I enjoy dialogue and superb screenplay. i also can't deny that i really into the cinematography which is so fascinating, and the fact that i love the ending that showed various places where they left their traces is just... so beautiful.
"Isn't life disappointing?"
This movie screwed my feelings up and left me with lonesome. With the slow-paced narrative, Ozu attached the audience emotionally through the uniqueness of each characters and poignant tragedy. The story that full of in-depth feelings in the ironic relationship between an aging couple with their children is pity enough, yet it feels so realistic in so many ways. Drifted away from parents, being selfish in accordance of working, and locked up in a busy life are so sick to watch.
Dear Sir Ozu, thank you for the lessons.
