In-Person Screening

Friday, June 3 at 7 pm

Screening on 35mm! Yasujiro Ozu’s late ’50s re-working of I was Born But… is a delightful comedy of manners, spurred on by an adolescent’s disdain for the pleasantries and proclivities of suburban Tokyo life. Taking an emphatic stance against their parents (and all adults, for that matter), Minoru and younger brother Isamu vow to remain silent until their parents purchase a television set. Poking fun at adult conversation—oftentimes buoyed by a meaningless sea of Konnichiwa’s, Ohayo’s and Konbanwa’s—Ozu’s gentle technicolor comedy takes aim at ’50s consumerism, small-town gossip and generational gaps while also offering some of cinema’s most memorable (and amusing) flatulence gags.

Dir. Yasujiro Ozu, 1959, 94 min., 35mm, color, in Japanese with English subtitles. With Keiji Sada, Yoshiko Kuga, Chishu Ryu.
