(aka 'An Inn in Tokyo' or 'Tokyo no yado')

Japan 1935

 

  An Inn in Tokyo (Tokyo No Yado) is the final installment of Ozu's "Kihachi Trilogy, and also one of his finest silent works. In many way, it anticipates Vittorio De Sica's Italian neorealist classic 'The Bicycle Thieves' as it focuses on the dignity of the individual and the vital details of the Depression, in this case in pre-war Japan. Kihachi is struggling with his two young sons as he tries his best to seek work. With the help of an old friend, Kihachi finally manages to obtain employment. However, in order to help the daughter of a single mother, he must maker a decision that could forfeit all his hopes and desires for a stable life for himself and his two sons.

Comments:

Japan was quite late into talkies and being 1935 this is one of the last of their silent era. The image has some pronounced damage marks in the first 1/3 of the film but settles down to be rather impressive considering the poor state that many Japanese films from this era are kept. There is minimal subtitle translation for the sporadic intertitles and it seems acceptable. Other than that no surprises, but the film is wonderful and a desired addition to my digitized film collection of Ozu's works.
