Graced with an impish wit and endearing sweetness, this charmer from Yasujirô Ozu is a playful look at the often humorous misunderstandings between adults and children. A loose remake of the director’s silent classic I Was Born, But…, Good Morning tells the story of two brothers who find creative ways to rebel when their parents refuse to buy them a television set—a simple premise that yields rich insights into intergenerational family dynamics. Boasting glorious color cinematography and unabashedly silly gags, Good Morning makes for a perfect introduction to one of cinema’s consummate masters. Ages 11 and up
