Japan Society's new film series, As Cherry Blossoms Fall: Films & Scenes of Sakura, continues tonight with this screening of After the Flowers at 7 PM.
Synopsis: If Jane Austen had ever written an edo-period love story or Ozu Yasujiro directed a swordplay drama, it might have looked a little like After the Flowers, an exquisitely mounted second feature by Nakanishi Kenji in which all emotions are beneath social surfaces and swordplay is held back to only two life-changing fights.
Tickets: $12 general admission, $9 for Japan Society members, seniors and students
