" Notes: I have to admit that I haven’t seen many Asian silent movies and it was the first time I saw an Asian silent comedy. It was so intriguing because it was probably the first silent comedy I saw which wasn’t from the US. Anyway, the damned thing was just so funny, original and surprising. Indeed, I think it was also the 1st time I saw a silent comedy with some children as the main characters and these 2 kids were just hilarious. Seriously, it was just impressive how they could deliver "

"24.1 Ozu/Japani Arvostetuimmassa mykkä-Ozussa ohjaajan myöhempi tavaramerkkityyli väikkyy milloin tuolla, milloin täällä. Vauhdikkaassa, komediallisessa elokuvassa seurataan uuteen naapurustoon muuttaneen perheen kahta lasta, veljeksiä. Missään elokuvassa lapsen näkökulmaa ei tavoiteta näin eloisasti.
