Yasujiro Ozu’s first foray into talkies provides a blueprint for the widely-celebrated masterpieces that followed. A widowed mother (Choko Iida) endures poverty and hardships to ensure that her only son receives the best possible education and a bright future. In turn, the son struggles with the pressure to live up to her expectations. Touching upon the universal themes of family, love and disappointment for which Ozu is celebrated, The Only Son is a wonderful entry point to the master director’s unique cinematic world. Ozu was born December 12, 1903 and died on the same day 60 years later. 

1936, 87 min., 35mm, b&w, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Yasujiro Ozu. With Choko Iida, Shinichi Himori, Masao Hayama, Yoshiko Tsubouchi, Chishu Ryu.
