Good Morning

3

Two scorned young brothers take a vow of silence in Ozu's warm comedy

Good Morning review

The latest in The BFI’S series of Ozu early/late doubles makes a shrewd pairing, since Good Morning is a remake of the silent I Was Born, But…

In the former, two young brothers, incensed that their parents won’t buy a TV, take a vow of silence, which causes neighbourhood gossip.

Farting contests figure prominently – so much for Ozu the austere classicist.

In both the humour is sly, warm and playful.
