MonStar wins with Tokyo Chorus (1931), a lesser-known gem from the great Japanese director Ozu Yasujiro. It's about a hapless salaryman who struggles to find a way to provide for his family in Depression-era Tokyo. Sounds serious, I know, but it balances seriousness with humor and parts of it are quite funny too. Highly recommended.
