I forgot to mention to the list that the actor Yamamura So died on the 
26th at the age of 90.  Yamamura was famous not only for starring in some 
of the great films of masters like Ozu, Mizoguchi, and Naruse, but for 
becoming the "ideal Japanese father" on many television dramas.  He also 
tried his hand at film directing in the 1950s, producing such social 
realist films as _Kani kosen_.
