Passing Fancy
The first of many films featuring the endearing single-dad Kihachi, Passing Fancy is a humorous and heartfelt study of a close, if fraught, father-son relationship.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A kind of odd departure for Ozu."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"A pleasing melodramatic silent directed by the great Yasujiro Ozu."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"... utterly contemporary to the times, a stylized snapshot of working class life in 1933 Japan, and Ozu's details of their subsistence existence... creates a rich atmosphere."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Turner Classic Movies Online
