Ranked #4 on Sight and Sound's Greatest Films of All Time Poll.

Now celebrating its 70th anniversary, Yasujirō Ozu’s most enduring masterpiece is a beautifully nuanced exploration of filial duty, expectation and regret. From the simple tale of an elderly husband and wife’s visit to Tokyo to see their grown-up children, Ozu draws a compelling contrast between the measured dignity of age and the hurried insensitivity of a younger generation.

“However, despite the guileless simplicity of Ozu’s characters and their depiction, there is a timelessness in their behaviour that makes Tokyo Story so much more than a mere portrait of a generation gap at a specific point in time.” – Jasper Sharp, Sight and Sound.

1953. Japan. Director: Yasujirō Ozu. Cast: Setsuko Hara, Chishû Ryû, Chieko Higashiyama, Sô Yamamura. Duration: 2hrs16mins. Cert: U. Language: Japanese with English subtitles.
