I remember seeing this several times over, along with the very helpful commentary. I think Ozu remade this movie later. I'm excited to see other films by Ozu..definitely a very careful craftsman. If you haven't seen this film, I definitely recommend it along with the commentary.

Phillip | 10276 comments yes, there's an early silent version, and an updated version from around 1960 (maybe a little bit earlier - but it's in color, and ozu didn't start working with color until the late 50's).

they are different films, to say the least. there's a nice release of both versions on criterion that many video stores have.

which version are you referring to, ed? the later version?

I think it's the first one..the silent version. What are the commentaries on them?

No it must have been the later version because it was Ebert's commentary that I heard.
