Pacing

After ten minutes I was getting extremely bored: fifties-era drama, fifties-era dialogue, etc. Something not quite "real". For some reason, I kept going, and soon became enamored of the PACE of the movie...

Which is to say: looking back, the movie/story was not riveting (and really only mildly interesting), but something about the timing, about the patience, and about the persistence, made this movie really GOOD.

I have now watched another Ozu, and realize that the pace is a function (in part) of a vision, depicted by the camera--which is almost always completely still.
