The Makioka Sisters (Sasame-Yuki)
Set in 1938 this film follows the lives of four sisters as they confront changing cultural attitudes between centuries-old Japanese tradition and encroaching elements of modern society. Gentle in tone and visually lush at times, the film is a lyrical adaptation of a novel by popular Japanese author Junichiro Tanizaki.
