205. Ozu Film #23: Spring Comes from the Ladies (1932)

23. Haru wa gofujin kara (Spring Comes from the Ladies) (1/29/32) (ca. 94 min.) [Silent B&W NEP]

Another of Ozu's college comedies. Now, however, the university years have become a precarious golden age during which the real problems of the world are seldom understood and all security is false. In this film Ozu was discovering in the educational system, and in the world of childhood, the acute angle from which he could both view and evaluate the adult world.
