Somebody like Yasujirō Ozu. Someone that leaves a lot of space and silence in their films. I like how he reveals mono no aware in his work. That is the style in which I would like my life to be filmed.
Here are some quotes that show why...
As a director, Ozu was eccentric and a notorious perfectionist. His films were typically infused with the concept of mono no aware, an awareness of the impermanence of things.
He invented the "tatami shot", in which the camera is placed at a low height, supposedly at the eye level of a person kneeling on a tatami mat. Actually, Ozu's camera is often even lower than that, only one or two feet off the ground. He used this low height even when there were no sitting scenes, such as when his characters walked down hallways.
In narrative structure, Ozu was also an innovator in his use of ellipses, in which many major events are left out, leaving only the space between them. For example, in An Autumn Afternoon a wedding is mentioned in one scene, and then in the next, a reference is made to the wedding that has already occurred. The wedding, however, never occurs on screen. This is typical of Ozu's films. Usually Ozu elides moments that Hollywood films use to stir an emotional reaction from the audience, thus eschewing melodrama.
