I have watched the first one, "Spring, Summer...", beautiful acting, very beautiful landscapes, and others such as "the tiger and the dragon", there is also a Japanese movie of the 50s, about an elderly couple, very beautiful and moving, but I don't remember the title... And another one, more recent, about a Samurai, whose wife is dead, and he is the caring and tender father of two little daughters...

Stavroula Avgousti, It's possible that the 1950s movie you remember with the elderly couple is Tokyo Story directed by Yazujirô Ozu. Keep an eye out for all the parallel movements and his "pillow shots" (quick scenes with no action so you have time to absorb all that went before).
