... the level of disappointment and despair in this film is unusual and devastating.

It's the noted director's first talkie and one of his best signature family dramas.

Audience Reviews for Hitori musuko (The Only Son)

you can already see the technical prowess of ozu's technique in this early film. the film was shot well and the story deeply moving. the film is held back slightly by the emptiness of the materialism of the culture that drives the idea of success, and the dialogue was a bit dry at moments, but the undertones of the relationships of the characters were crafted well by ozu. overall a great film.
