Hideo, the youngest son of the Nagura family, plans to commit double suicide with Haruko since his father disapproves of their relationship.
Hideo’s death brings shame upon the family, yet Haruko survives and raises their son Suteo.
18 years later, Suteo becomes entangled in another family tragedy.
With its sharp critique of family traditions and its non-linear structure, The Snow Flurry is one of the forerunners of the Japanese Nouvelle Vague.
This is a rare, unmissable opportunity to see this masterpiece on the big screen, screening from 35mm print.
