The Flavour Of Green Tea Over Rice [U]

Runtime: 116 mins

Distributor: BFI

Taeko and Mokichi Satake are a childless married couple living in Tokyo. Their already-rocky relationship is strained by a series of secrets and lies; the wife’s urban sophistication bumps up against the husband’s small-town simplicity. However, their angst is disrupted by their headstrong, modern niece – who’s using her unhappy aunt and uncle as an excuse to keep her from being bound to married life. Another delicate domestic tale from Yasujiro Ozu, The Flavor of Green Tea over Rice delves into post-war domesticity with wry, tender humour and a sensitive heart.
