Dragnet Girl by Yorkshire Silent Film Festival

by The Leeds Library


Dragnet Girl by Yorkshire Silent Film Festival.

Enjoy the effortless cool of Ozu’s homage to Hollywood gangster films.

Joji is a washed-up boxer turned hoodlum whose former glory and current infamy has won him the admiration of impressionable young wannabe hoodlum, Hiroshi – and Hiroshi’s life is going off the rails fast. Kazuko, Hiroshi’s sister, steps in, but Joji’s current girlfriend, Tokiko, senses competition…

With its film noir-ish settings of smoky clubs, pool halls, and dingy tenements, Yasujiro Ozu’s gangster melodrama is a homage to the American movies he spent so many hours watching in his youth.

Tickets are £0-£10.83. Book on the link.

Irine Røsnes (violin) and Jonny Best (piano) will improvise a live musical accompaniment.

Dir. Yasujiro Ozu, 1933, Japan, 100 minutes.

Part of Japan 2021.

Thanks to BFI and Shochiku.
