“I was getting sick of failure, and decided to make a film in a nonchalant mood… I couldn’t figure out what to do to make a good film. What can a director bequeath to posterity? I began to find film meaningless. Now, I feel the other way around. The very fact that films could fade into oblivion is what makes it so enchanting.” – Ozu

The very fact that films could fade into oblivion is what makes it so enchanting.
