Straightforward Boy (1929)
User ReviewsReview this title
This is effective, but more than that it is shocking, so western. But this was before the three great Asian wars of the 20th century.
Ted's Evaluation -- 2 of 3: Has some interesting elements.
If the film deserves a place in the film history of Yasujiro Ozu, it deserves none in the larger realm of world cinema history. By this time, much better films that deserve your time much more than 'A Straightforward Boy' were being made.
In short, if the film's director wasn't Ozu, there'd be really no reason to watch it. But, because the director is Ozu, things are mildly interesting.
