"Ozu's direction of the children is quite masterly and he makes some splendidly wry comments on middle-class family life. Whichever way you look at it, it remains a supremely funny film, sunnily shot on locations which include Ozu's favourite highways and byways." (John Gillett)

The screening will be accompanied by live music composed by Belgian Gwenaël Grisi.
