Tōkyō boshoku = Tokyo twilight by Yasujirō Ozu( Visual )

32 editions published between 1957 and 2014 in Japanese and English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ozu's only postwar film to take place in the dead of winter tells of an aging father and his two daughters. The younger has an affair and becomes pregnant. The elder has left her husband and returned with her child to her father. Both are astonished when their mother, presumed dead, turns up alive. In this dark film, Ozu's vision of post-war Japan portrays his theme of the sins of one generation affecting the next, illustrated brilliantly by a series of parallels drawn sensitively between characters, which manages to be both compassionate and scathing. Even the seemingly happy ending has an embedded twist. It depicts Ozu's harsh condemnation of modern Japanese society and family life

I was born, but( Visual )

5 editions published between 1932 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of Ozu's most popular films, I was born, but . . . is a blithe portrait of the financial and psychological toils of one family, as told from the rascally point of view of a couple of stubborn little boys. For two brothers, the daily struggles of bullies and mean teachers is nothing next to the mortification they feel when they realize their good-natured father's low-rung social status. Reworked decades later as Ozu's Technicolor comedy Good morning, it's a poignant evocation of the tumult of childhood, as well as a showcase for Ozu's expertly timed comedy editing
