(1941) In the wake of the death of a wealthy family’s patriarch, a kind of replay of King Lear and Tokyo Story (in reverse), mother and youngest sister Mieko Takamine are shunted from household to household — until a return of erstwhile happy-go-lucky youngest son Shin Saburi. Ozu’s first bona fide box office hit and fourth Kinema Jumpo “Best One” winner. Approx. 105 min. 35mm.

"The film was a substantial box-office hit, Ozu’s first, and generated an audience for his work that by and large remained for the rest of his career. "
– Adam Bingham, Senses of Cinema
(1937) Doctor Tatsuo Saito’s plans for a getaway from pushy wife are complicated by super-modern niece’s visit. Ozu’s first hilarious film on upper classes, with Tokkankozo tour-de-force. Approx. 71 min. 35mm.
