Product Notes

These rare early films from Yasujiro Ozu (TOKYO STORY, AN AUTUMN AFTERNOON) are considered by many to be two of the Japanese director's finest works, paving the way for a career among the most sensitive and significant in film history. THE ONLY SON and THERE WAS A FATHER make a graceful pair, bookending a crucial period in Japanese history. In the former, Ozu's first sound film, made during a time of intense economic crisis, a mother sacrifices her own happiness for her sons education; the latter, released in the midst of World War II, stars Ozu stalwart Chishu Ryu as a widowed schoolteacher trying to raise a son despite financial hardship. Criterion proudly presents these nearly lost treasures for the first time on home video.
