1932. Japan. Dir: Yasujiro? Ozu. With Tatsuo Saito?, Tomio Aoki. 100 min.
This self-described “picture book for grownups” follows two young brothers making a name for themselves as leaders of the neighborhood gang. Meanwhile, their father sits amongst the dregs of the business world as a lowly office clerk. Revered director Ozu offers a tender reminder of the richness in Japan’s largely unseen silent filmmaking tradition.
