11 minutes of scene fragments, but unmistakably Ozu
13 December 2003 | by alsolikelifeSee all my reviews

A college graduate is unable to find a job but tries to hide his unemployment from his wife and fiancee. Though only 11 minutes of fragments is all that remains of Ozu's initial entry in the "I Verbed, But..." series, it still plays rather coherently.
