These rare early films from Yasujiro Ozu (TOKYO STORY, AN AUTUMN AFTERNOON) are considered by many to be two of the Japanese director's finest works, paving the way for a career among the most sensitive and significant in film history. THE ONLY SON and THERE WAS A FATHER make a graceful pair, bookending a crucial period in Japanese history. In the former, Ozu's first sound film, made during a time of intense economic crisis, a mother sacrifices her own happiness for her sons education; the latter, released in the midst of World War II, stars Ozu stalwart Chishu Ryu as a widowed schoolteacher trying to raise a son despite financial hardship. Criterion proudly presents these nearly lost treasures for the first time on home video.
