Description

Details

A Tokyo suburb buzzing with gossip is the backdrop to Ozu's cheerful comedy, Good Morning. Disillusioned with the meaningless talk to their elders, two brothers take a vow of silence when their parents refuse to buy them a TV. Good Morning pokes fun at the silliness of everyday chatter whilst gently acknowledging its fundamental necessity.

Also included here is Ozu's superb early comedy I Was Born, But.... The forerunner of Good Morning, this silent masterpiece contains many similar themes but a darker edge. As brothers Ryoichi and Keiji struggle to outwit the local bully and scale the pecking order in their new neighbourhood they find out that injustice does not end with school.
