Ozu's The Kid.
I found this incomplete work to be very entertaining and having the potential to have been something greater then what is left, which is the feeling I get from all of Ozu's mostly lost works.
Like I Graduated, But... only parts of this film remain but what's left is a pretty entertaining comedy about two would be kidnappers who are too soft-hearted to cope with their demanding victim.
The gags (mostly) hit their mark, but this Ozu short isn't great. But its a dent film all-around.
Entertaining, early Ozu.
this is adorable
A Japanese version of Ransom of Red Chief, with excellent slapstick humor.
