Yasujiro Ozu is an artist, his exceptional dramas topping "best of" lists from diverse critics worldwide. But one of his rarely-documented talents is for comedy: in OHAYO Ozu demonstrates his comedic skills, creating a light-hearted and hilarious "slice of life" comedy in the vein of Jacques Tati.
When their parents refuse to buy them a television, two rowdy young boys rebel by taking a vow of silence. Their oath becomes a community issue when they refuse to even say good morning?or, "ohayo!"?to their parents? friends, causing a neighbourhood quarrel. This remake of I WAS BORN BUT? sees some Ozu-favourites such as Chishu Ryu (TOKYO STORY, TOKYO GA) and Kuniko Miyake (THE FLAVOUR OF GREEN TEA OVER RICE, EARLY SUMMER) joined by a terrific young cast of vibrant performers. Sweetly comical and true-to-life, OHAYO is a departure for Ozu?but a richly rewarding one.
