Average 1930's Japanese drama
3 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very mild spoilers ahead: This is an obscure Japanese drama from the 1930's about the fairly common story (in Japanese movies anyway) about a single mother who is slaving away to provide a better life for her son. The son is feeling stifled by her attention and is studying law, a subject he is not particularly interested in. Trouble comes when he meets a woman who is beneath his station who takes a romantic interest in him. This is mostly a light drama with some comedic touches. Unfortunately, the movie is indifferently directed and goes on much too long. The actor who portrays the son gives him such a passive character that it is hard to care what happens. There are some good points about the movie, however, most particularly the performance of Takeshi Sakamoto, who plays the boy's uncle, who goes to rather drastic lengths to resolve the situation. Mr. Sakamoto was the actor who played the Kihachi character in a number of Ozu's movies from the 30's and his character here is very similar. The ending of the movie is also very affecting which makes up for the tedium of a lot of the earlier scenes. All in all, not a bad movie, but certainly no lost classic.
