I Was Born, But …

I Was Born But...

One of director Yasujiro Ozu’s most popular films, I Was Born, But … is a blithe portrait of the financial and psychological toils of one family, as told from the rascally point of view of a couple of stubborn little boys. For two brothers, the daily struggles of bullies and mean teachers are nothing next to the mortification they feel when they realize their good-natured father’s low-rung social status. Reworked decades later as Ozu’s Technicolor comedy Good Morning, it’s a poignant evocation of the tumult of childhood, as well as a showcase for Ozu’s expertly timed comedy editing. (35mm. Japanese language with English intertitles.)

This film is presented with piano accompaniment by Dave Drazin.
