(1933) Day laborer Takeshi Sakamoto’s relationship with son Tokkankozo is complicated by his crush on a younger woman. “A subtle and beautiful film” (Richie) and Ozu’s second Kinema Jumpo “Best One” award. Approx. 103 min. 35mm.
“A MASTERPIECE! Opens with one of the funniest stretches of slapstick Ozu ever filmed, though the remainder is colored by Chaplinesque pathos. As the loving and lovable father, Sakamoto creates one of the most complex characters in Japanese cinema, and Kozo (who played the younger brother in I Was Born, But...) isn't far behind. The milieu they inhabit is perfectly realized, making this a pinnacle in Ozu's career.”
