Directed by master filmmaker Yasujiro Ozu, Early Summer is an intense but often humorous observation of the stresses that affected the family as a unit. Ozu's lens zooms in on the close-knit Mamiya family as they try to marry off their 28-year-old daughter. A beautiful example of the domestic dramas of postwar Japan, Criterion's edition of Early Summer features an exquisite transfer, with new electronic English subtitles.
