Movies Remade by the Same Director

Ozu

People who added this item 52 Average listal rating (34 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.8

Ozu thought of himself as a tofu maker, because of the stylistic and thematic consistency of his films. Ozu actually called Floating Weeds a remake and I'd characterize it as having a less distinctly different flavor.

Good Morning (1959)

Good Morning has less serious themes than I Was Born But...; the boys go on a hunger strike for a TV set.
Mr. Saturn's rating:
People who added this item 278 Average listal rating (157 ratings) 8.6 IMDB Rating 8.3
Late Spring (1949)
Mr. Saturn's rating:
People who added this item 105 Average listal rating (59 ratings) 8 IMDB Rating 8.1
Late Autumn (1960)

Setsuko Hara's character is a widowed mother, unlike in Late Spring where she is the daughter of a widowed father. Ozu made many films where the main plot is the father or mother marrying off his/her daughter.

An Autumn Afternoon is my favorite variation of this theme; it's his final film, and my third favorite Ozu film.

Evil Dead II (1987)

The remake is more satiric than the original. Evil Dead II remakes the first film in about the first 15 minutes.

People who added this item 871 Average listal rating (544 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 7.5

A director makes only one movie in his life. Then he breaks it into pieces and makes it again. - Jean Renoir

Films remade by the same director, that aren't considered inferior to the original. I only listed films if I'm interested in seeing both versions.

I'm not interested in seeing the remakes of J'accuse, Spoorloos, or Funny Games.

You might like IMDB's list of films remade by the same directors.

Recommendations are appreciated.
