autumn afternoonAn Autumn Afternoon is a melancholy family drama about a widower who, with the help of his friends, realizes that it is selfish for him to let his daughter continue to live at home and look after him. Reminiscing at a reunion dinner, he is told by a former teacher that one is alone in life, and that it is the bonds of family that can keep you from loneliness. A gentle and thoughtful film, An Autumn Afternoon provides a glimpse into post war Japanese culture and the challenges of modern society (Klaus Ming March 2016).
