  1. Erik F.'s rating of the film Der einzige Sohn

    Ozu's first "talkie" is hardly his best, but is still a poignant and sensitive work that deserves to be seen.

  2. Adam GR's rating of the film Der einzige Sohn

    A devastating shot of an anguished mother's face. A fenced-in courtyard. A gate. Padlocked. The film ends. OZU IS FREAKING INSANE. Hope and HUMILITY. Thank your mother! And talk about burying the lead, YOUNG CHISHŪ RYŪ THAT SWITCHBLADE SMILE AND JAW CAN CUT MY SOUL IN TWO. And then when he GREW A BEARD AND OPENED A TONKATSU SHOP?? GET IT CHISHŪŪ̄Ū̄̄Ū̄̄̄Ū̄̄̄̄Ū̄̄̄̄̄

  3. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film Der einzige Sohn

    It is heartbreaking to be a parent that wants to but can’t give their child the world, and it is heartbreaking to be the child that wants to but can’t live up to those expectations because the world favors a structure that favors the rich and not always the hardworking.

  4. Šarūnas Milaševičius's rating of the film Der einzige Sohn

    Tragedy in life starts with the bondage of parent and child.

  6. Feellikeanumber's rating of the film Der einzige Sohn

    3.5 Ozu’s first talkie. Powerful story, but feels dated and formalist. I really wanted to like this, but ultimately couldn’t. Watched the original version from Tretyakovskaia gallery, Moscow

  7. Mimic Hootings's rating of the film Der einzige Sohn

    The saddest film I've ever seen. No great tragedies or terrible disasters, just an unflinching look at the wearying daily grind of life. And yet also a celebration of the goodness that people are able to show in the face of that soul-sapping dreariness. Titanic performance from Chôko Iida

  10. Bilouaustria's rating of the film Der einzige Sohn

    Beautiful little film and first talkie for Ozu. The delicate style and observations are already there (Ozu made a few masterpieces in the early 1930s) but the editing is still a bit heavy here. The story is somehow typical, about hiding your emotions as long as you can for finally giving up. You can expect or hope anything you like, life has other plans for you. Chishû Ryû is still so young here !

  11. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film Der einzige Sohn

    The most underrated Ozu imo is also his first talkie, right before war and during the industrialization of Japan. The film is about a single mother’s devotion to her son, who does not quite live up to her expectations and there is absolutely nothing worse than a mother’s disappointment. Ozu was a master at evoking such emotional frustration.

  12. sksksksk's rating of the film Der einzige Sohn

    Funny how administering or receiving the words "I'm proud of you" can be so heartbreaking sometimes

  13. FISCHER's rating of the film Der einzige Sohn

    Premier film parlant du cinéaste et déjà sa trente-cinquième réalisation, magnifiée par une étonnante palette chromatique du noir et blanc dans l'utilisation de la lumière naturelle, à travers une parfaite maîtrise du clair-obscur, rehaussée par la rigoureuse composition du cadrage, surtout des plans moyens et à travers une grammaire cinématographie de plus en plus personnelle et dépouillée. www.cinefiches.com

  15. emanuela's rating of the film Der einzige Sohn

    un racconto semplice, di vita ma grandiosamente rappresentato. Anche la ''morale'' è tipica credo del pensiero orientale ... un film veramente illuminante!

  16. ermete polpette's rating of the film Der einzige Sohn

    questo è un film (anche) sul rapporto con la madre, non quello della Akerman che ne mostra una ossessione conflittuale, il cui conflitto sprofonda nel resto del mondo, cosa su cui non posso che ridere

  17. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Der einzige Sohn

    Not the best Ozu, but a pretty good one.

  18. Aardsy's rating of the film Der einzige Sohn

    He's not quite there yet.

  19. Hugo Poderoso's rating of the film Der einzige Sohn

    Empty moments, gestures and positions that express the lack of connection between mother and son. Inherited expectatives and undesired duties: satisfaction is impossible, there will always be disappointment. Should the son try harder or should the mother accept him as he is? What's with the son's wife? Is she an orphan? Mother and son seated next to a factory (why that place?): amazing photogenics.

  20. Slow Immersion's rating of the film Der einzige Sohn

    Have to confess, that Ozu is a director who I never saw anything of great value, and although I am one of the few who don't like Tarkovsky as all, I do respect that his films have high artistic value. But honestly Ozu's films do nothing at all for me and the overacting makes them hard to connect with.

  23. rian's rating of the film Der einzige Sohn

    because life itself is a disappointment

  24. gaffordKINO's rating of the film Der einzige Sohn

    Many of the scenes in Ozu's first sound endeavor are emotionally stirring, but for me maybe the most affective elements of this film are the shots in which the foreground is in focus and the background out, with the shot of the infant in the foreground and the son, his mother, and his wife in the background.
