  5. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Passing Fancy

    Lo que parece ser un melodrama, o hasta un triángulo amoroso, termina por pasar a segundo plano para abrir paso a la historia de un padre en edad madura, aunque con una inexperiencia pronunciada. "Passing fancy" narra la historia de un padre en contínuo aprendizaje. Ozu repite el plato sobre la frustración de un hijo ante la conformidad que observa en el padre. El drama estalla sin embargo ambos aprenden y se aman.

  6. Ozu_Teapot's rating of the film Passing Fancy

    This starts off rather like Ozu's earlier silent comedy Fighting Friends but develops into more of a tragi-comedy focusing on a father-son relationship, a precursor to his later family centered dramas.

  7. AKFilmFan's rating of the film Passing Fancy

    Mixing together well-crafted comedy, father-son drama, and a romantic triangle, this isn't Ozu's best silent film (that's probably I Was Born, But…). But this is still very funny and touching dramedy definitely shows Ozu's prowess at silent filmmaking.

  8. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Passing Fancy

    Ozu may not have been known for it, but damn did he make good comedies!

  9. knockkneed's rating of the film Passing Fancy

    A simple, intimate silent. I love the socio-economic commentary.

  10. Erik Gregersen's rating of the film Passing Fancy

    Ozu seems to know *exactly* where to put the camera.

  11. jimmylorunning's rating of the film Passing Fancy

    A very straight forward narrative with endearing and kinda hopeless characters... and oh yeah, it's a silent film that doesn't feel like silent film at all. The acting is so far ahead of its time, very naturalistic. Ozu really sees through to the truth, without judging it too harshly. This film is both hilarious and sad, but not in an too-weighty kind of way. I loved it.
