Good Morning

Yasujirō Ozu's 1959 comedy Good Morning is about two young brothers who go on a silence strike until their parents agree to buy a television. It's also a pretty great window into suburban life in Japan in the Sixties. That combines to stand in a pretty stark contrast to the other Japanese films we've watched so far. Maybe what we've learned is that Kurosawa would be more interesting to me if there were more fart jokes. Just kidding! Kurosawa is already interesting to me. Though a fart joke in High and Low would have been amazing.
