Not Rated | | Drama
An old couple visit their children and grandchildren in the city; but the children have little time for them.
American cinema expert Donald Richie took Satyajit Ray to see the film. Ray was overcome with emotion by the end.
Why, you're back so soon. You should have stayed longer!
Tomi Hirayama: We're home.
Hair salon customer: Who are they?
Shige Kaneko: Oh, just friends from the country.
At timer mark 1:45:46, when the children are visiting their mother at home and leave the room to talk with the father in an adjoining room, just as they sit on the floor, you see the shadow of the boom-mic just drop into the scene and back out again, just over the sons head on the top right of the screen. This shadow is well into the frame against the edge of what appears to be a bookshelf and should not be considered a masking mistake of the projectionist.
