The Only Son

Dir. Yasujiro Ozu (1936). Ozu’s first talkie is also his first recognizably Ozu-ean family drama—a single mother who has slaved and sacrificed for her son’s education visits him in Tokyo and receives an education of her own. The final shot—a unique blend of heartbreak and acceptance—is one that Ozu would repeat throughout his career.
Fridays-Sundays, 11 a.m. Starts: July 16. Continues through July 18, 2010
