YOUTH OF THE SON (1952, aka MUSUKO NO SEISHUN) marked Masaki Kobayashi's official directorial debut, telling the story of a father and two teenaged sons, and the rivalry between the two siblings as they begin to discover the attraction of girls. Although Kobayashi is credited as director, the movie was heavily influenced (and larger supervised) by Kobayashi's longtime mentor Keisuke Kinoshita (1912-1998) and as such, it is more dominated by a sentimental tone common to Kinoshita's films than displays of Kobayashi's later, familiar lyrical visual style.
