Tokyo Story
Munekata Sisters

For one week only Dendy Newtown will be commemorating the life and work of Japanese master filmmaker Yasujirô Ozu at the Dendy Newtown.

Beginning his career during the era of silent films, Yasujirô Ozu is widely regarded as one of  the world’s greatest and most influential filmmakers of all time, due to his unique approach to moviemaking, an  unmistakable visual style, and the incorporation of timeless themes in his later films such as family and marriage,  and especially the relationships between generations.

Moving to sound films in the late 1930s, this is where Ozu  cemented the ‘master’ filmmaker title with the release of highly acclaimed films, The Only Son (1936), Late  Spring (1949), The Munekata Sisters (1950), and Tokyo Story (1953).

With more than 50 directorial credits, Yasujirô Ozu has stamped his claim as one of, if not the most important Japanese filmmakers to have ever lived!

Late Spring (1949)

Noriko (Setsuko Hara) is perfectly happy living at home with her widowed father, Shukichi (Chishû Ryû), and has  no plans to marry — that is, until her aunt Masa (Haruko Sugimura) convinces Shukichi that unless he marries off  his 27-year-old daughter soon, she will likely remain alone for the rest of her life. When Noriko resists Masa’s  matchmaking, Shukichi is forced to deceive his daughter and sacrifice his own happiness to do what he believes  is right.

The Munekata Sisters (1950)

Setsuko is unhappily married to Mimura, an engineer with no job and a drinking habit. She’s always been in love  with Hiroshi, but he left for France years ago without proposing. Now he is back, and Mariko (Setsuko’s sister)  tries to reunite them, although secretly she loves him too.

Tokyo Story (1953)

The elderly Shukishi (Chishu Ryu) and his wife, Tomi (Chieko Higashiyama), take the long journey from their small  seaside village to visit their adult children in Tokyo. Their elder son, Koichi (Sô Yamamura), a doctor, and their  daughter, Shige (Haruko Sugimura), a hairdresser, don’t have much time to spend with their aged parents, and  so it falls to Noriko (Setsuko Hara), the widow of their younger son who was killed in the war, to keep her in laws company.

Ticket sales for OZU WEEK can be found at the Dendy Newtown website.

Courtesy of Dendy Sydney Arts Guide has two in season double passes to give away to  see a film by this extraordinary filmmaker. Email with OZU PROMOTION in the subject heading. Winners will be advised by email and the tickets will be emailed across to the winners.
