Synopsis: In the late twenties and early thirties, Yasujiro Ozu was working steadily for Shochiku studios, honing his craft on dozens of silent films in various genres, from romantic melodramas to college comedies to gangster pictures— and, of course, movies about families. In these three droll domestic films—TOKYO CHORUS, I WAS BORN BUT..., PASSING FANCY— Ozu movingly and humorously depicts middle-class struggles and the resentments between children and parents, establishing the emotional and aesthetic delicacy with which he would transform the landscape of cinema.
