    Description: In post-war Tokyo a crusty old landlady (the excellent Choko Iida) reluctantly takes in a stray child for the night. When the father cannot be found she starts to take care of the kid and slowly a bond forms between the two. This is one of the most crowd-pleasing as well as most moving of all the Ozu's movies. It combines the raw poetry of some of the italian neo-realistic masterworks with a Frank Capra-like goodnaturedness.
