Family Matters: A Yasujirô Ozu Double Bill

MUBI Special

Good Morning

Yasujirô Ozu Japan, 1959

Ozu’s cinema is an inextinguishable enquiry into the idea of family and the clash between tradition and modernity. Boasting a gorgeously pastel colour palette, Good Morning blends the Japanese master’s signature themes with disarming humour making for one of the greatest childhood films of all time.

Tokyo Story

Yasujirô Ozu Japan, 1953

A masterpiece in radical subtlety, Ozu’s Tokyo Story is less concerned with plot than it is with feeling. Crafted in his compassionate, contemplative style, this sensitive, quiet miracle of a film patiently reveals universal truths: about families, and moreover, the cycles and rhythms of time.
