Sweet and special

The year is 1949, and Noriko and her father live a happy, quiet life in rural Japan where she attends tea ceremonies and he is a professor. Friends and relatives start pestering the 27-year old woman, asking when she will marry, but Noriko likes things just the way they are.

This wonderful movie, called a "masterpiece" by many critics, is a quiet, subtle, and gentle look at the loving relationship between a father and daughter. It also captures forever post-war Japan when traditional manners and customs were practiced, kimonos were a common sight, and there were no tourists to be seen. The movie takes its time exploring Noriko's world and her reasons for not marrying; the final scenes are quite touching and universal-appealing. Recommended especially for fans of Japanese films, but this is a story that everyone can relate to. In Japanese with subtitles.
