I Was Born, But . . .
One of the great silent comedies and master director Yasujiro Ozu's first Best Film Award winner, I Was Born, But . . . is a blithe portrait of the financial and psychological toils of one family, as told from the rascally point of view of a couple of stubborn little boys. For two brothers, the daily struggles of bullies and mean teachers is nothing next to the mortification they feel when they realize their good-natured father's low-rung social status. I Was Born, But has been compared to Hal Roach's Our Gang series. Yet it is much more, reflecting a tumultuous 1930s Japan being shorn of its traditions. Reworked decades later as Ozu's Technicolor comedy Good Morning, it's a poignant evocation of the tumult of childhood, as well as a showcase for Ozu's expertly timed comedy editing.

Japan, 1932, 91 min., bw, 35mm / Director: Yasujiro Ozu / Writer: Akira Fushimi / Cast Tatsuo Saito, Mitsuko Yoshikawa, Hideo Sugawara, Tomio Aoki, Takeshi Sakamoto
