Ozu interiors





Please excuse the poor quality of these pics, I've just realised I should have done screengrabs instead, but nevermind. It's all about the colours anyway. Aren't they just amazing? I'm a huge fan of Yasujiro Ozu's films, especially the ones he shot in colour. These are from Floating Weeds and I love how Ozu will leave incidental interior shots in, just as a beautiful vignette. I also feel if I was to redecorate I should be a bit more bold with my colour choices.

Two Japan themed blogs I've been enjoying recently:

  2. ja gud, skit i kvalitén, färgerna är så fina! jag hade en kort men tydlig period av filmtittande för många herrans år sen... då jag tittade på liknande filmer alltså. minns inte så mycket av handlingen, men miljöerna och färgerna helt enastående. (och skittråkigt för den handlingsintresserade personstackare som tittade på film MED mej).... :)

  3. the last ozu we watched was late autumn. and i agree, famapa, he has a way of balancing bold and intimate that is to be relished.
