Ozu gone wild!
15 December 2003 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

The picture centers on the relationship between a capricious widower (the great Takeshi Sakamoto) and his son (a brilliant performance by one of the 'I Was Born, But...' kids) through many misadventures.

A rambling plot, a tone that shifts from slapstick to high-strung melodrama and characters whose actions are so inconsistent they might as well be schizophrenic. This movie, which feels like a jumble-sale of scenes and ideas, really shouldn't work but, by some inexplicable alchemy, it does.

When the boy gets seriously ill, will he survive? In other movies the necessities of the plot or the mood of the film may enable you to predict the fate of major characters, here, as in real life, anything can happen. Ozu, whose style is often considered constrained and restrictive, manages to infuse this movie with an enormous sense of freedom resulting in a work that, like the impulsive but loving father, is both bizarre and impossible not to like.
