  2. joey Noodles's rating of the film Youth of My Son

    Incredibly touching and charming, Kobayashi's debut film was clearly very strongly influenced by his mentor Keisuke Kinoshita. However, it was really really enjoyable and I finished it with a huge smile and a grin on my face, which was nice. It's well acted with a nice little cameo from Ozu regular Chishu Ryu and it does make some good statements about growing up to. Not to compare with later work, though. 3.5/5
