Michiyo moved to Osaka two years ago, when her husband Hatsunosuke who works at a stock brokerage was transfered from Tokyo. She wash, cook and clean 365 days a year. All the dreams and hopes she had when they got married five years ago seems to be gone. From here on we follow the everyday life of Mr. and Mrs. Okamoto.
This really is a great movie, subtle and intelligent. Its also a fascinating contemporary insight into post war Japan and the struggle of ordinary people there to rebuild their lives. And it features a great performance from Setsuko Hara as the wife, with a very able supporting cast (most of the actors will be very familiar to anyone who has seen other Naruse or Ozu movies). Strongly recommended.
