I Was Born, But...

I Was Born, But... is a 1932 award-winning Japanese silent film directed by Yasujir┼Ź Ozu. The story is of an office worker whose two young sons think their father is too subservient to his boss. A sweet, light comedy with substance.

  2. I'm enjoying these vintage Japanese films you post occasionally. I find the cultural differences fascinating, especially since although still there, they are not as obvious in many ways today as there were then. Happy weekend. hugs-Erika

    1. This director has become a favorite. It is interesting to see how family life was similar and different there than here in various periods.

    1. It's interesting to see the difference in the culture of that time and place but also the ways in which it's familiar.
