Comedy, Coming of Age
Japanese (English subtitles)
Two brothers, frustrated by their parents' refusal to buy a television set, take a vow of silence. After all, what else is there to do in a small Tokyo suburb, where all the grown-ups seem to do is gossip? This gentle comedy examines the role of small talk in the relationships that exist amongst a group of neighbours. The focus is always with the children - surly Minoru, who just wants to watch televised sumo wrestling, and Isamu, who copies everything his older brother does. There's also some flatulence humour thrown in for good measure.
1950s drama about a middle-aged civil servant who finds he is dying, and feels he's wasted previous decades, from iconic director Akira Kurosawa.
