The Flavor of Green Tea over Rice

JP 1952, 2h00
Directions: Yasujirô Ozu
Drama
Japanese spoken, Dutch and French subtitled
CUBO

Tokyo in the 1950s. Mokichi is a businessman of humble origins, with ditto wishes and preferences. He likes to smoke cheap cigarettes and his favourite dish is ochazuke (“green tea over rice”).
Very different is his wife Taeko, a sophisticated woman born and raised in Tokyo, who is bored with her reliable but simple husband. Hebben de twee elkaar nog iets te vertellen? The arrival of Taeko’s lively, urban cousin Setusko speeds things up.

The Flavor of Green Tea over Rice is vintage Ozu: the calm, balanced images and sparse dialogues make the frictions between the couple fully palpable.
