Ozu’s Technicolor reworking of his silent I Was Born, But . . . , Good Morning is the story of two young boys in suburban Tokyo who take a vow of silence after their parents refuse to buy them a television set.
Ozu’s cinema is an inextinguishable enquiry into the idea of family and the clash between tradition and modernity. Boasting a gorgeously pastel color palette, Good Morning blends the Japanese master’s signature themes with disarming humor, making for one of the greatest childhood films of all time.
