When college nostalgia inspires a group of middle-aged businessmen to match-make for the widow - played with measured dignity by Setsuko Hara (Tokyo Story) - of one of their friends and her daughter, they have no idea of the strife their careless interference will cause.

Yasujiro Ozu’s post-war films.

Included here is the surviving version of Ozu’s moving silent drama A Mother Should Be Loved. Missing both first and last reels the incomplete film nevertheless achieves a dramatic intensity in its portrayal of Sadao, a young man struggling to deal with a disturbing family secret.
