Older Brother, Younger Sister

Ani imôto

Directed by Mikio Naruse
Japan, 1953


It’s bad enough for a domineering rural dad to realize his family survives on the money from Mom’s riverside tea stall and that his son, erstwhile classy intellectual Masayuki Mori, is turning into a tattooed brawler. But then eldest daughter Machiko Kyo returns from the city pregnant.
