    A great pity there are no English subtitles. I've now got through all of Ozu's better-known movies and would really have liked to have seen these earlier works.

    I found 4 OZU DVD sets (Japanse editions) on yesasia.com. There is no clear description on how many DVDs are in each set but there are no English subtitles, only Japanese. This site has quite a few Ozu DVDs (Korean editions) which are reasonably priced and have English subtitles.
