Days of Youth

Days of Youth is a 1929 Yasujiro Ozu film. A silent comedy film, it tells the story of 2 young men, college friends, who court the same young woman. This is the earliest known of his films to survive. I liked it but found myself distracted so decided to put it aside for another time. Of course, once I went back to it Hulu didn't have it available.

via Youtube:

DVD Talk says, "The picture is quite enjoyable, easy to follow and influenced by Hollywood comedies" and concludes, "Days of Youth is an enjoyable and accessible if somewhat overlong comedy that exemplifies Ozu's early career."

I've also blogged these other of his films:

Late Spring (1949)
Tokyo Story (1953)


  1. It's strange what Hulu has done with their free wall and how they are now pimping their paid shows. It's even hard to find much of anything free through Hulu these days, especially if you are looking for something specific. Sorry this happened to you, but I'm glad you got to see part of it, anyway.

    1. If you catch them when they're free.... but they do regularly change the free ones out for others. I should've known better than to wait so long to go back to it.
