A beautiful little film. Missed the cinema release but so glad I caught it. They weren't kidding when the critics were calling this a Japanese ode to Rohmer. This is what's happening more and more, international voices all paying homage to other cultures and styles reminiscent of bygone eras in other countries. Really exciting. Bresson and Tavernier have previously edged into Ozu territory, I hope that there will be more French filmmakers and filmmakers outside Japan who will do the same with Japanese cinema, and vice versa (as you shall witness in Hotori no Sakuko!)
