Otona no miru ehon - Umarete wa mita keredo

Yasujirô Ozu Japan, 1932

Cineastic's rating of the film I Was Born, But...

Beyond a reasonable doubt, the best coming-of-age film of all time. This film is about loss of innocence and the realisation that adults are just giant children. It's essential for any Ozu fan to see how his aesthetics came to be through this picture, and they are so fulfilling as always.
