“This touching tale of depression-era travails is shot just like a sound picture with intertitles. That’s to say the performances are entirely naturalistic, as Sakamoto’s unemployed dad wanders in search of a job to feed his two sons, who’re reduced to catching stray dogs so they can sell them to the municipal pound, thus giving the family the choice of a meal or a bed for the night. Ozu does allow hope to fringe the horizon, but even when the central trio are miming their enjoyment of invisible rice and saké, it never lapses into sentimentality.” – Time Out (London)
