(1930) Cheating plans fall hilarious prey to spilled ink and enthusiastic laundering, but real graduates can’t find work, and landlady’s boy (Tokkankozo) plans to flunk like his idol. Plus fragment of I GRADUATED, BUT... 大学は出たけれど (1929). Approx. 64 min. 35mm.
“The film remained important to Ozu because it was the first one in which he entrusted a major role to Chishu Ryu, the actor who was later central to his work… Several critics have maintained that the Ozu atmosphere could not exist without this actor, and Ryu himself soon became aware that he was playing the Ozu persona.”
