second sundays with ozu and you too

the next second sunday at the old hairdressers with your musical host williwaw, according to our organizing companion the calendar, is the 13th of April. starting at 8 pm, there'll be another bevy of favourite overlong overtures to stasis and decline, but nestled in the chiaroscuro will be Yasujiro Ozu's 1930 silent kessaku, Sono Yoru No Tsuma (That Night's Wife), a happy-go-lucky tale of a dying child in a desperately poor family.
