Product Description

Passing Fancy' DVD, Ozu Yasujiro (1933), New & Sealed


Dekigokoro (Passing Fancy), is one of Ozu's 3 masterpieces from 1933. It stars the second of cinematic Ozu's 'alter egos', Takeshi Sakamoto. Sakamoto typically plays a down and out working class father. Here, he is especially dense, to excellent comic effect. Tomio Aoki (in probably his most significant child role) plays a kid who seems to be considerably brighter than his father -- and who does more to keep the household running. Aoki is (of course) quite funny. But he also does an excellent job of showing a child's response to unwanted change. He and his father have long depended solely on each other -- but now his father has his eye on a young woman who has moved into their slum neighborhood. Aoki very much resents his father's interest in the woman -- and resists her attempts to win his affections.

This is an extremely visual film, with lots of completely 'wordless' humor. The film starts out with an extended scene in a music hall (Chishu Ryu performing as the 'singer') in which first a lost wallet circulates, and then a flea (or fleas). Probably not as great a family drama as the prior 'I Was Born But' or the subsequent 'Tokyo Inn', but nonetheless quite enjoyable.
