Tokyo Twilight

Play trailer

Yasujiro Ozu / JP, 1957 / 140 min.

Ozu’s final black and white film – with its deep psychological layers – may well be the darkest of his masterful family portraits. It follows the parallel courses of two sisters struggling with the absence of their mother, unwanted pregnancy and marriage trouble. New 4K restoration.

poster Tokyo Twilight (Yasujiro Ozu, JP 1957)
Tokyo Twilight, subsumed with wintry melancholy, reveals the destructive effect of marital secrets on the lives of two sisters: the unhappily married Takako (Setsuko Hara) and the rebellious Akiko (Ineko Arima), a lost soul in the world of late-night bars and mahjong parlour backrooms.

In Eye and national cinemas from 3 February 2022.
