August Evening follows an aging undocumented farm worker named Jaime and his young, widowed daughter-in-law, Lupe, as their lives are thrown into upheaval. Lupe is more of a daughter to Jaime than his own children, and the two try to stick togetherů but change is inevitable. At the heart of the story is the conflict between generations. Aging parents and grown children have difficulty expressing both their love and mutual disappointment in each other. A father recognizes the unstoppable force of time and must say goodbye to his daughter so she can start her own life. The film is naturalistic in tone, featuring humming cicadas, ethereal music, chicken farms, meaningful glances, and rustling leaves. It includes subtle romance, gentle humor and heartbreaking tragedy, but it should not be depressing. Instead, we concentrate on the Japanese idea of "mono no aware," which is difficult to translate, but involves finding peace with life's imperfections. Heartwarming scenes highlight the bittersweet nature of life, finding resolution in the warmth of the characters, the beauty in sadness, and the universality of the human experience.
