Tokyo Monogatari – Yasujiro Ozu

“Ozu’s method, like all poetic methods, is oblique. He does not confront emotion, he surprises it. Precisely, he restricts his vision in order to see more; he limits his world in order to transcend these limitations. His cinema is formal and the formality is that of poetry, the creation of an ordered context that destroys habit and familiarity, returning to each word, to each image, its original freshness and urgency.”

Richie, Donald. Ozu / Donald Richie. Berkeley: University of California, 1974. Print.
