An aging couple visits their children in Tokyo only to find heartache and rejection.

DirYasujiro Ozu CastChishu Ryu , Chiyeko Higashiyama , Setsuko Hara .

 LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Yasujiro Ozu. Chishu Ryu, Chieko Higashiyama, So Yamamura, Haruko Sugimura, Setsuko Hara. "An elderly couple (Ryu, Higashiyama) visit their children in Tokyo, who are too busy living their lives and treat them tactlessly. Quietly powerful story of old age, the disappointments parents experience with their children, and the fears the young have of time passing. A masterpiece. Not shown in the U.S. until 1972."

crime

French adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's novel, about Tom Ripley, a talented mimic, moocher, forger and all-around criminal improviser.

DirRené Clément CastAlain Delon , Marie Laforêt , Maurice Ronet .
 LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Rene Clement. Alain Delon, Marie Laforet, Maurice Ronet, Frank Latimore, Ave Ninchi. "Marvelously photographed (in southern Italy, by Henri Decae), tautly directed suspenser about Delon, who envies playboy-friend Ronet and schemes to murder him and assume his identity. Based on Patricia Highsmith's The Talented Mr. Ripley. That's Romy Schneider among the friends stopping by cafe in opening scene. Remade as THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY; also see THE AMERICAN FRIEND."

romance

In 19th-Century Paris, four men with very different intentions court a sideshow performer.

DirMarcel Carne CastArletty , Jean-Louis Barrault , Marcel Herrand .

 

 LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Marcel Carne. Jean-Louis Barrault, Arletty, Pierre Brasseur, Albert Remy, Maria Casares, Leon Larive, Marcel Herrand, Pierre Renoir.

"Timeless masterpiece of filmmaking (and storytelling), focusing on a rough-and-tumble theatrical troupe in 19th-century France. Barrault plays the mime whose unfulfilled passion for free-spirited Arletty dominates his life, even as he achieves great fame on stage. Wise, witty, and completely captivating. Written by Jacques Prevert. Filming began in 1943 in Nazi-occupied France, but wasn't completed until 1945."
