I Flunked, But . . .
Directed by Yasujiro Ozu • 1930 • Japan
Starring Tatsuo Saito, Kinuyo Tanaka, Chishu Ryu
After the plans of a college student (Tatsuo Saito) to cheat on his final exams by scribbling notes on his shirt go awry, he is left to reassess his life and education and get back on track. Featuring legendary actors Chishu Ryu (in his first major role for director Yasujiro Ozu) and Kinuyo Tanaka, this lighthearted silent comedy is a delightful satire of university life and a charming portrait of a young man’s entry into maturity. (Presented without score.)
