  4. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film What Did the Lady Forget?

    A breezy 71 minute film from the God we call Ozu Yasujiro!

  5. Stevie's rating of the film What Did the Lady Forget?

    A lesser Ozu which still remains entertaining. 7/10.

  6. Ben Dooley's rating of the film What Did the Lady Forget?

    A lovely Ozu film - very simple, focused on a Professor and his strict wife whose niece comes to visit them in Tokyo, from Osaka. They abscond from the wife to get drunk and see a geisha show. At the same time his pupil is failing to prepare a child for his school entry exam in maths. Feels influenced by some Hollywood visuals particularly Lubitsch; but also their complicity is figured through 'gangster' hats.

  7. AKFilmFan's rating of the film What Did the Lady Forget?

    Moments of light humor are present in this Ozu comedy but the real pleasure is the contrast of the stifled husband and the free-spirited niece that resembles Ozu's later work. The ending is a real charmer too.

  8. Jazzaloha's rating of the film What Did the Lady Forget?

    A light family comedy, which is mostly fluff. I did like the resolution of the film.
