Day laborer Takeshi Sakamato’s relationship with son Tokkankozo (child star of Ozu’s I Was Born But…, etc.) is complicated by his crush on a younger woman. Passing Fancy, which critic and film historian Donald Richie called “a subtle and beautiful film,” won Ozu’s second consecutive Kinema Jumpo “Best One” award – Japan’s Best Picture Oscar equivalent.
