THE BROTHERS AND SISTERS  OF THE TODA FAMILY and WHAT DID THE LADY FORGET?

THE BROTHERS AND SISTERS OF THE TODA FAMILY
戸田家の兄妹

(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.
1:20, 4:50, 8:30

"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
