The title refers to the subject of the films contained within this collection: these are not films made by Ozu as a student; the stories all feature aspects of student life. In 'Days of Youth', two rival boys compete for a girl’s affections. In 'I Flunked, But . . .' a student's efforts to cheat in his exams are thwarted. 'The Lady and the Beard' explores the amusing consequences of a kendo master embracing modern life. 'Where Now are the Dreams of Youth?', in which four college friends end up working together, portends Ozu’s shift to heavier, more contemplative material.
He might not be as famous as his contemporaries Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, but Harold Lloyd was still the clown prince of silent slapstick.
