Good Morning U rating

Yasujiro Ozu's cheerful comedy about the silliness of everyday chatter.

Comedy 1959 94 mins

Director: Yasujirō Ozu


A Tokyo suburb buzzing with gossip is the backdrop to Ozu's cheerful comedy, Good Morning. Disillusioned with the meaningless talk to their elders, two brothers take a vow of silence when their parents refuse to buy them a TV. Good Morning pokes fun at the silliness of everyday chatter whilst gently acknowledging its fundamental necessity.
