descriptionOne of the most private of Ozu"s films, "There Was A Father" is a resemblance of his early work, "The Only Son". An aging father, who has been a good teacher all his life, has to leave his son to work in Tokyo, due to an accident that happened in his school. His son grew up to follow his footsteps and become a teacher, but all he wants is to live with his father again. When the son finally has a chance to live with his age-old father, his father falls critically ill. Replacing the playful and demonstrative affection between father and son in the "Kihachi" series, this film observes silently the moments when emotions are unconsciously in unison, and is all the more touching.
