103 mins

The oldest known surviving film by legendary Japanese director Yasujirô Ozu.

Ozu’s debut feature film Days of Youth is a carefree and joyful romantic comedy that follows the extravagant efforts of two men unknowingly competing for the same girl. Made in the director's student days, it is his most lighthearted film and although it’s very different to his later work, a keen eye could certainly spot how this film helped shape the incredible career he had ahead of him.

This event is also available to watch live online and for up to seven days after. Access it and other fantastic Slapstick festival events with a Slapstick Online Pass or event ticket.
