Yasujiro Ozu's 1949 drama is getting the Criterion Blu-ray treatment in April.
In an early announcement to retailers, the Criterion Collection will release 'Late Spring' on Blu-ray on April 17.
One of the most powerful of the family portraits by Yasujiro Ozu, 'Late Spring' tells the story of a widowed father who feels compelled to marry off his beloved only daughter.
The Blu-ray will feature a 1080p transfer, uncompressed mono soundtrack, and supplements include: Audio commentary by Richard Peña, program director of New York’s Film Society of Lincoln Center; Tokyo-ga (1985), filmmaker Wim Wenders’s ninety-two-minute documentary about director Yasujiro Ozu; and a booklet featuring essays by critic Michael Atkinson and Japanese-film historian Donald Richie.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.95.
