[Ozu's] sense of generational conflict in a society at risk from within is here at its sharpest and most anarchic.
May 20, 2011
Perhaps the most delightful of Yasujiro Ozu's late comedies.
May 20, 2011
As unpromising as all this may sound, Good Morning is another Ozu gem, a covertly sophisticated ensemble piece scripted with the intricacy and precision of a well-constructed Restoration comedy of manners.

It's Ozu's simplest and most schematic film, a lighthearted comedy that is built around the motif of changing values from the old to the new.

A brimming sense of life, in other words, gradually transforms the small talk into a richly devious portrait of humanity being human.

Ozu's delicate, wry comedy of manners takes a sympathetic but not uncritical look at life and etiquette in a small 1950s Japanese village community.

This is all potentially interesting, to be sure, but the ideas are wrapped in a surprisingly innocuous package.

This may not be one of Ozu's most acclaimed works, yet its contemplative style and its qualities of humour, tenderness and absence of cynicism make for an absorbing film.
September 1, 2002
comparable in spirit to Fellini's Amarcord with its love of character, humor, and relentless fart jokes

This is a much more complex, ambiguous, and challenging film that most reduce it to.

As an introduction to Ozu, it's a perfect film. And, in addition, I think it has more to offer artistically than its reputation would suggest.
