There Was a Father

父ありき| Chichi ariki

Trailer
Directed by Yasujirô Ozu
Japan, 1942
Drama

Synopsis

Though primarily a delicately wrought story of parental love, There Was a Father offers themes of sacrifice that were deemed appropriately patriotic by Japanese censors at the time of its release during World War II, making it a uniquely political film in Ozu’s body of work.
