Picking up where Tartan left, Palisades Tartan present this thriller on UK DVD later this month...
The final volume in Tartan’s collection contains two of Ozu’s final films – <i>Late Autumn</i> and <i>An Autumn Afternoon</i> - two late masterpieces from one of the world’s greatest film directors.
Tartan's third Ozu collection captures the director's move from b&w to colour films with <i>Tokyo Twilight</i>, <i>Equinox Flower</i> and the delightful <i>Good Morning</i>, and thankfully there is a corresponding improvement in quality for this set.
Noel Megahey reviews the second volume of Tartan's Ozu Collection, containing two delightful films from the director's golden post-war period - Record of a Tenement Gentleman and Flavour of Green Tea over Rice. The DVD set however shows no noticeable improvement in the quality of the transfers.
