Late Spring
(1949)

Noriko (Setsuko Hara) does not want to leave her father and marry a man she does not know at all, but her father decides that in the end Noriko needs to leave home and build her own family, and he cooks up a story that he too is set to remarry. Noriko is angry and hurt that her father has found "another woman" in his life and reluctantly marries but not before a tearful conversation in which she says she's doing it for his sake and that marriage won't make her happier. After the wedding it's revealed that Noriko's father never had any intention of remarrying. He feels extremely lonely after the wedding without his beloved daughter and slowly peels an apple before succumbing to tears and inevitable loneliness and old age.
