    Fanning the futon again.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film The Record of a Tenement Gentleman

    Une oeuvre fort tendre, bien mal accueillie par la critique nippone... www.cinefiches.com

  3. Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Record of a Tenement Gentleman

    Film with a message. Recommended.

  4. Hugo Poderoso's rating of the film The Record of a Tenement Gentleman

    Be it a beach by daytime, a residential alley, a photographer's studio or a giraffe licking a number, common details and places vibrate under Ozu's poetic and curious eye in a way that reminded me of Jean Epstein's films.

  5. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film The Record of a Tenement Gentleman

    My rating might go up if I see it again; but for now, my feelings are that it's a gentle, relaxing look at Showa-era Japan. The plot and characters are relatively simple, but it's a winning piece of impressionistic cinema.

  8. BC's rating of the film The Record of a Tenement Gentleman

  9. Sirius_911's rating of the film The Record of a Tenement Gentleman

    Dans un petit village peuplé d'âmes solitaires au coeur d'un Japon meurtri, quoi de plus simple et de plus puissant qu'un enfant pour amener un peu d'humanité. Un ton juste, un propos moderne, une aura universelle, un chef-d'oeuvre signé Ozu

  10. Claire Baradat's rating of the film The Record of a Tenement Gentleman

    "Je cogne!" Et pourtant elle se lève et cherche l'enfant, dans une scène touchante et juste.

  11. cyrikelly's rating of the film The Record of a Tenement Gentleman

    L'enfant, l'énergie du film. L'enfant, c'est aussi se donner un futur. Très beau film. Merci M. OZU.

  12. azoulay's rating of the film The Record of a Tenement Gentleman

    Un film fait de deux silhouettes, deux personnages solitaires dans le Japon en ruine d'après guerre, qui à täton comme deux aveugles se prennent au jeu de s'apprivoiser. On peut regretter la faiblesse d'un scénario sans surprise mais comme toujours l'émotion et la justesse d'Ozou sont là

  13. Anne-Sophie Bruttmann's rating of the film The Record of a Tenement Gentleman

    ode à l'enfance par Ozu, sur fond de désespoir social.

  14. Zé Dias's rating of the film The Record of a Tenement Gentleman

    Does anyone know where can I find a link to this with english subtitles please?

  15. Cole Caudle's rating of the film The Record of a Tenement Gentleman

    Another deceptively simple and beautiful masterpiece by one of my favourite filmmakers. The scene where Chishu Ryu sings the narrative ballad is one of my all time favourite Ozu moments.

  16. WhatsUpWill's rating of the film The Record of a Tenement Gentleman

    Ozu, you damn, magnificent bastard, somehow you took a rote story and made it original and surprising again.

  17. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film The Record of a Tenement Gentleman

  18. Jazzaloha's rating of the film The Record of a Tenement Gentleman

    One of the most preachy of his films--delving into social commentary. Acting is very good, as usual, and I enjoy Ozu's light touch when it comes to comedy as well.

  19. Iain Stott's rating of the film The Record of a Tenement Gentleman

    A fun, but uncharacteristically unsubtle and disappointingly didactic, film from the Japanese master.

  20. Filip Akerman's rating of the film The Record of a Tenement Gentleman

    Enamouring and fun! Like watching a Miyazaki-film but with live-action and with the Ozu-way of cinematic expression.

  21. Brandon=andon=andon=andon's rating of the film The Record of a Tenement Gentleman

    A truly humanistic film, very heartwarming and moving.
