Yasujiro Ozu's Ohayo (Good Morning) is a comedy about a pair of boys who bring much trouble to their family and community by refusing to do very basic activities. The boys desire a television, but their father refuses. They are so insistent that the father eventually commands them to be quiet. They take him quite literally and refuse to speak at all, not even a typical polite morning greeting. Their impoliteness begins to weigh down both the family and the town as it goes against the ordered social structure of Japanese culture. The film is a remake of Ozu's earlier 1932 silent film I Was Born, But...

NOTE: This DVD is NOT in 'pan-and- scan.' It's is in its original full screen version. A delightul story loosely adapted from Ozu's early silent, this tells the story of two boys who go on a hunger strike until their father buys them a TV. Convinced that Japan would become 'a nation of idiots' with the acceptance of the television, this amusing conflict tells a great deal about the necessary courtesies that fuel everyday life. Perhaps the director's most accessible (and instantly lovable) film.
