Higanbana = Equinox flower by Yasujirō Ozu( Visual )

13 editions published between 1958 and 2013 in Japanese and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A daughter wishes to marry the man of her choice but her father objects. He is tricked into assent. This theme of loss of masculine authority reverses the quiet assurance of the father in Late Spring and the husband in Flavour of Green Tea Over Rice. Despite being set in the autumnal part of summer when the equinox flower blooms, this is a lighter film with a mix of straight comedy, irony and satire. Ozu at times playfully employs formal strategies such as point-of-view against the grain of classical conventions. The narration typically has gaps (ellipses) and a number of parallels to the central plotline which affect the main line of action in a more classical unifying way than is usual in Ozu films. Colour is used as a striking element in visual design helping to highlight objects
