Asian Movies I've Watched Part 6 (200 movies items)

"This is the first silent Ozu movie I've seen. It's an tale about 2 brothers who move with their family to a Tokyo suburb and become leaders of a gang of kids. Their antics are amusing to watch. The story does turn decidely darker in the second half as the two sees their father make an idiot of himself in front of his company's workers which makes them lose all respect for him. It makes for fascinating viewing as you see a Tokyo that has long since disappeared. The cinematography is fantastic and"

life-affirming films (100 movies items)

" This film grew out of my desire to make a film about children. A story about children to begin with, but veers towards adults by the end. The tone is initially lighthearted, but halfway through a shift occurs and it ends on a bleak note. - Ozu (source) "
