Atarashiki Tsuchi (The New Earth/Daughter of the Samurai) (1937) Clip of filming of Akira Kurosawa's No Regrets for Our Youth (1946) From You Tube comments: According to the narration, this footage was shot by a member of the American Survey Team. It seems GHQ/SCAP was interested in Japanese filmmaking to some extent. Many Americans saw the shooting of K's previous film. One was John Ford. K didn't know it at the time (though F was his idol), and F didn't know who K was either. Years later…

Early Summer by Yasujiro Ozu. An intimate and touching look at three generations of one family and their evolution.

Early Summer

The Mamiya family is seeking a husband for their daughter, Noriko, but she has ideas of her own. Played by the extraordinary Setsuko Hara, Noriko impulsively chooses her childhood friend, at once fulfilling her family's desires while tearing them apart. A seemingly simple story, _Early Summer_ is one of Yasujiro Ozu's most complex works—a nuanced examination of life's changes across three generations. The Criterion Collection is proud to present one of the director's most enduring classics.
