Good Morning ★★★★★

Good Morning is a funny and sweet family comedy made by the great Ozu. It's interesting to compare this piece's levity to his other films, especially his dramas, considering how often sad his works can be. The film also slyly conveys an appealing anti-authoritarian streak and as well as the sad, universal premise that adults never can, or maybe never try to, understand the youth. A nonchalantly delightful masterpiece.

Also, Ozu proves, once and for all, that fart jokes can be funny and meaningful to a story.
