“Sharp and anarchic”
The New Yorker

“A richly devious portrait of humanity being human”
Time Out

“A completely charming comedy of manners”
Donald Richie

This surprisingly light comedy from Yasujiro Ozu shows us suburban Tokyo family life through the eyes of two young boys who are obsessed with all things western and go on strike for a television set. To our knowledge, this is the only Ozu film to feature fart jokes.
