The Whole Family Works

Mikio Naruse, Japan's master of understated melodrama, directed this 1939 story of an impoverished Tokyo family and one son's attempt to break out of the cycle of financial struggle and go away to college; the film has strong parallels with Naruse's own youth. In Japanese with subtitles. 66 min.
