秋刀魚の味 / 1962 / 監督 小津安二郎
An Autumn Afternoon, 1962, dir. Ozu Yasujirô
These are the first four shots of Ozu’s last film. I think making them GIFs, rather than stills, is important, so that you appreciate just how little is going on in each shot - only the passage of time.
Think about this in comparison to the fourth film by Imamura Shôhei, made one year prior, which opens like this. Imamura worked on several Ozu films as an assistant before quitting and renouncing Ozu’s technique and ideology. There’s a slight commonality to the shot composition, but it is really, really a completely different beast.
