"August 25th Directed by: Yasujiro Ozu Surprisingly much better than the supposed remake of the film Good Morning. I say that because the film is almost entirely different except for one big plot point. The difference is Good Morning has a lot more going for it in terms of aesthetic, being made in the 60's and all, where everything looks incredible. But what Good Morning lacks is a good story, which I didn't even realize until seeing this. Normally, I'm not really a stickler for story in films,"

"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"
