Still on kimonos and things Japanese ...

Kendalee of Dance of a Painted Lady has posted a kimono-inspired quilted art work (from an exhibition she recently visited) that is absolutely amazing! My quest for a kimono has reminded me of the fantastic trilogy of films by Yasujiro Ozu that I saw earlier this year. I absolutely loved Tokyo Story, and also his Early Summer and Late Spring. They were made between 1949 and 1953. His other films do not seem to be available here - I would so love to see them! Some stills ...

stephanie - Oh, you must see it! It is very slow though, so it is not everbody's cup of tea. I LOVED Tokyo Story, but it is a bit sad...
