Plot Sypnosis:

During the war in French Indochina, a married Japanese man falls in love with a young typist, Yukiko, and promises to marry her after the war. Upon their return to Tokyo, their idyllic relationship crumbles, but they cannot keep away from one another. Despite finding nothing but conflict and instability, they helplessly return to each other again and again as they attempt to rebuild their lives from the ruins of World War II.

A classic of Japanese cinema described as a 'masterpiece' by Yasujiro Ozu, Floating Clouds is a melancholy meditation on the hopeless side of love. Through the lens of Yukiko and Tomioka's tempestuous relationship, Mikio Naruse's most acclaimed film quietly captures the devastation of a country in economic post-war ruin.
