Tokyo Story

Yasujiro Ozu / JP, 1953 / 135 min.

A deeply moving analysis of the alienation between grandparents living in the countryside and their urbanite children and grandchildren in Tokyo. When the aged couple decides to visit, their children are too self-occupied to have time to spare for their parents. One of Ozu’s most dramatic films is high on the lists of all-time classics.
