Product Description

The Only Son' DVD, Ozu Yasujiro (1936), New & Sealed

Of all the major directors in the world, Ozu was the last one to convert to sound; 'The Only Son' was his first 'all-talkie' film (in 1936), and it is remarkably inventive (technically) as well as deeply moving. Once again, his film deals with family dynamics: in this case, a widowed mother who has worked selflessly to provide her son with an education. But when she goes to visit him, she finds that he has not fulfilled his promise: he's stuck in a mediocre job, he has a wife and child and can't make any drastic changes because of his responsibilities. The ways that the mother and son try to reach an understanding, and their mutual resignation to the disappointments of life, create a glancing but powerful sense of that 'quiet desperation' which was so often Ozu's theme.
