Ozu’s first talkie, the uncommonly poignant The Only Son, is among the Japanese director’s greatest works. In its simple story about a kind and patient mother who gives up everything to ensure her son’s education and future, Ozu touches on universal themes of sacrifice, family, love, and disappointment. Spanning many years, The Only Son is a family portrait in miniature, shot and edited with its maker’s customary exquisite control. In Japanese with English subtitles.
