25 editions published between 1957 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ozu's only postwar film to take place in the dead of winter tells of an aging father and his two daughters. The younger has an affair and becomes pregnant. The elder has left her husband and returned with her child to her father. Both are astonished when their mother, presumed dead, turns up alive. In this dark film, Ozu's vision of post-war Japan portrays his theme of the sins of one generation affecting the next, illustrated brilliantly by a series of parallels drawn sensitively between characters, which manages to be both compassionate and scathing. Even the seemingly happy ending has an embedded twist. It depicts Ozu's harsh condemnation of modern Japanese society and family life

The flavour of green tea over rice by Yasujirō Ozu( Visual )

18 editions published between 1952 and 2009 in Japanese and English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Made the year before Ozu's most acclaimed work Tokyo Story, The Flavour Of Green Tea Over Rice may surprise those who associate the Japanese filmmaker with intimate and soberly shot studies of family relationships. Here there are trips on planes and trains and in cars, and Ozu also finds time in his story to visit baseball matches, cycle races, spas and amusement parlours. The camera is also much more dynamic than we're used to seeing in Ozu's films with traveling shots at the main couple's household. Three characters stand out among various plotlines. There's Taeko (Kogure), who's the daughter of a wealthy businessman and the wife of executive Mokichi (Saburi). Used to a life of luxury, she's bored with her unpretentious husband, who prefers homely comforts such as a meal of rice with tea. Completing the trio is Setsuko (Keiko Tsushima), their niece and representative of a new spirit in postwar Japan, who talks excitedly about the French film star Jean Marais. She won't participate in the arranged meeting that's been planned for her, describing the process as 'uncivilised', and uses the unhappiness of her uncle and aunt to defend her position. The Flavour Of Green Tea Over Rice illustrates both a marriage in crisis and how love can be unexpectedly rekindled. There's a vein of gentle humour running through the film seen, for example, in the hapless efforts of Mokichi and Taeko to find food in their kitchen without the assistance of their servants. As ever Ozu finds intelligent ways of visually linking his scenes, as with a motif of cramped corridors. And if the film appears to endorse Motoki's traditional values, the playful resolution leaves Setsuko's own romantic future up in the air." -- Film Four website
