    The Rigid Repression of An Autumn AfternoonMidway through Yasujiro Ozu's An Autumn Afternoon, Shuhei, an elderly, widowed businessman with two sons (Koichi, Kazuo) and a daughter (Michiko), faces a dilemma. Although Michiko is well into her twenties, she has yet to find a male partner with whom she can settle down and raise a family. Based on previous observations, Shuhei believes that Michiko would be a good match for Miura, a colleague of Koichi's.

    An autumn afternoon, a watercolor sunset streaked muted pastel shades across the sky. It was a bitingly cold chill that belonged to winter. My eyes were focused on the Manhattan skyline, a beautifully grotesque thing. Nature, half obscured by looming manmade structures. I wasn 't sure what was uglier. What an outlandish thought, to find nature so unnerving. I had been so preoccupied by my own devices that I hadn 't noticed a small girl on a crumbling concrete stoop, her eyes intently focused on…
