A seemingly simple story, Early Summer is one of Yasujiro Ozu's most complex works-a nuanced examination of life's changes across three generations. The Criterion Collection is proud to present one of the director's most enduring classics."--Website
Ukigusa monogatari = A story of floating weeds( Visual )

31 editions published between 1934 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 794 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1959, Yasujiro Ozu remade his 1934 silent classic, A story of floating weeds in color with the celebrated cinematographer Kazuo Miyagawa (Rashomon, Ugetsu). Setting his later version in a seaside location, Ozu otherwise preserves the details of his elegantly simple plot wherein an aging actor returns to a small town with his troupe and reunites with his former lover and illegitimate son, a scenario that enrages his current mistress and results in heartbreak for all. Together, the films offer a unique glimpse into the evolution of one of cinema's greatest directors. A story of floating weeds reveals Ozu in the midst of developing his mode of expression; Floating weeds reveals his distinct style at its pinnacle. In each, the director captures the joy and sadness in everyday life

Umarete wa mita keredo : otona no miru ehon = I was born, but by Yasujirō Ozu( Visual )

32 editions published between 1932 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 450 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
Dekigokoro = Passing fancy( Visual )

25 editions published between 1933 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first of many films featuring the endearing single-dad Kihachi (played wonderfully by Takeshi Sakamoto), Passing fancy is a humorous and heartfelt study of a close, if fraught, father-son relationship. With an ever more sophisticated visual style and understanding of fragile human relationships, Ozu seamlessly weaves rib-tickling comedy and weighty family drama for this distinguished precursor to a brilliant career
Tōkyō boshoku = Tokyo twilight by Yasujirō Ozu( Visual )

38 editions published between 1957 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 327 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

A profoundly stirring evocation of elemental humanity and universal heartbreak, Tokyo story is the crowning achievement of the unparalleled Yasujiro Ozu. The film, which follows an aging couple's journey to visit their grown children in bustling postwar Tokyo, surveys the rich and complex world of family life with the director's customary delicacy and incisive perspective on social mores. Featuring lovely performances from Ozu regulars Chishu Ryu and Setsuko Hara, Tokyo story plumbs and deepens the director's recurring theme of generational conflict, creating what is without question one of cinema's mightiest masterpieces
