One of just the cutest films I've seen - with a great social commentary to boot! Such a delight.

Who would have thought the most fart gags in film history would be in an Ozu film? :)

Charming. The tale of the chatty mothers and the gassy children.

Rejoice! The TV set is here!

Imagine if some crazy '50s producer had decided to make a "Leave It To Beaver" feature film ... only he hired Yasujiro Ozu to direct ... and insisted the film include both a commentary on television and a running fart joke ... and it WORKED! Ozu's taste for gentle family drama and "tatami mat" shooting angles give it a child's-eye view that perfectly matches the story, Minoru and Isamu are kid-level irresponsible without being brats (consistently adorable) and Ozu's muse Chishu Ryu is tone-perfect as usual as the gruff put-upon father. My new favorite from the master. 9/10

In 1959 Yasujirô Ozu made a fair statement against television, even before it reached the masses. Great movie! I think all fart jokes and some other points were a deliberate action in making it look like a B-trash TV movie..
