1959. Japan. Dir: Yasujiro? Ozu. With Chishu? Ryu?. 94 min. 35mm print.
After two young brothers’ request for their parents to buy a television is denied, they conduct a silence strike in protest. Ozu (Tokyo Story) lends his pet topics of generational conflict, subtle social dynamics, and the modernization of Japan a cheeky and heartwarming spin , his formalist rigor leavened with suburban charm and a surplus of fart jokes.
