Good Morning: The Criterion Collection

A lighthearted take on director Yasujiro Ozu's perennial theme of the challenges of intergenerational relationships, Good Morning tells the story of two young boys who stop speaking in protest after their parents refuse to buy a television set. Ozu weaves a wealth of subtle gags through a family portrait as rich as those of his dramatic films, mocking the foibles of the adult world through the eyes of his child protagonists. Shot in stunning Technicolor and set in a suburb of Tokyo where housewives gossip about the neighbors new washing machine and unemployed husbands look for work as door-to-door salesman, this charming comedy refashions Ozu's own silent classic I Was Born, But... to gently satirize consumerism in postwar Japan.
