Google Japan Doodle for Yasujirō Ozu

A lovely little Google Doodle today to mark the anniversary of Yasujirō Ozubirth (小津 安二郎 1903年12月12日 – 1963年12月12日) – a scene from his most famous film, Tokyo Story (東京物語):

Oddly, Ozu died on his birthday, so today marks both his birth and his death. Here is the trailer for the film (with English subtitles):

Also, from today, at the National Film Center in Kyobashi (Tokyo), there is an exhibition called “The Iconography of Yasujiro Ozu”. Click on the image below for info in Japanese (for English info click here and scroll down):
