“Made soon after his return from the front in China, Ozu’s biggest hit to date prefigures some aspects of Tokyo Story. When her husband dies, Mrs. Toda and her youngest daughter are shuttled between the family’s brothers and sisters; only the youngest son, working in occupied China, is willing to care for them properly. Bourgeois selfishness is criticised while a new generation shows the ‘correct’ way forward.” – BFI
