Setsuko Hara
Posted 11/2/08 , edited 11/3/08

If you're a fan, what is your favorite role of her?

Mine would be Takako Numata in Tokyo Twilight.



As requested, here is some information about her. From Wikipedia:

Setsuko Hara (Japanese: 原節子; born Masae Aida on June 17, 1920 in Yokohama, Kanagawa prefecture) is a famous Japanese actress who appeared in many of Yasujiro Ozu's films, most notably as Noriko in the Noriko Trilogy (Late Spring, Early Summer, and Tokyo Story). She also starred in pictures by Akira Kurosawa, Mikio Naruse and other prominent directors. She is called "the Eternal Virgin" in Japan and is a symbol of Japanese film's golden era of the 1950s. She suddenly quit acting in 1963, and has since led a secluded life in Kamakura, refusing all interviews and refusing to be photographed (making Japanese-cinema scholar Donald Richie refer to Hara as the "Greta Garbo of Japan"). Her final role was Riku, wife of Oishi Yoshio, in a film of Chūshingura. She later became the inspiration for the protagonist of the 2001 movie Millennium Actress. [1]
Movie Roles:
No Regrets for Our Youth (1946)
Late Spring (1949)
The Idiot (1951)
Repast (1951)
Early Summer (1951)
Tokyo Story (1953)
Sound of the Mountain (1954)
Tokyo Twilight (1957)
The End of Summer (1961)

She's actually a pretty well known actress. I'm surprised that no one has never at least heard the name.

I've heard of her, she's the actress in 'The Idiot', right? If so, I loooove that movie, and she's a really good actress, and she was stunning, 50 years ago

Edit// If that's not her, I will feel like a complete douche :|

Douchebag of the day? That's an insult I've never heard before.
So, who's the actress in 'The Idiot', if it's not Setsuko Hara.

I think she's the actress in 'The Idiot'. You're not a douche
Except if she isn't and I'm also wrong. Then we both are a couple of douches
