Good Morning (Ohay˘) Reviews
Despite being an immature comedy with most the humor based off farts- which was rather funny- Ozu creates an important simple statement on communications and understanding. There's nothing to profound in what is being said but it's simply humanist and adds a great charm to this film. The film has a perfect balance between showing the trivial conflicts of the children and of the adults. Despite it being clear that the characters have greater problems in their lives Ozu points the camera at two petty ones. Simple, calming, absorbing, meaningful, and beautiful. A truly great film.
The decide to begin a pact of silence until they get their TV & that lands them in some difficult situations. It's a light film that travels slowly but everyone in the film is so interesting to watch.
The two young boys are particularly great in the roles & the film just grows on you...it's directed by the Japanese master Yashiro Ozu who directed Tokyo Story ten years earlier.
