Announced today: Setsuko Hara passed away in September

[ETA, the actress in the video thumbnail is not Setsuko Hara, but her co-star in Tokyo Story] Featured actress in so many post-war classic Japanese films, including ‘Tokyo Story’. It’s amazing to think Ozu and Kurosawa and Mizoguchi were making works like this just 5, 10 years after the atomic bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
