A good-natured mother gives up everything to ensure her son's education and future.
Why was I thinking about flower arrangement while watching "The Only Son" the first sound film made by the Japanese master Ozu? It must have involved the meticulous and loving care he used with his familiar visual elements.
It's the noted director's first talkie and one of his best signature family dramas.
Ozu distills a lifetime of silent misunderstandings and muffled frustrations in a painful succession of false smiles and showy courtesies ...
... the level of disappointment and despair in this film is unusual and devastating.
