Ikiru (to Live)

Another of Akira Kurosawa's classic movies.
Ohara-san finally spits it out at the end.

This shot was only on screen for about 1 or 2 seconds. Don't miss it near the end.
Look for the DVD in your library.

Was it the son only thinking of himself, to continue to accuse Watanabe-san of being cruel in hiding his situation, even while he and his wife were counting their inheritance? Or is it simply too much sadness and guilt for the living to accept the obvious?
