One of Japan’s most acclaimed films, both domestically and internationally, Yasujiro Ozu’s Tokyo Story delicately but devastatingly critiques 20th century family values. An elderly couple travels Tokyo and Osaka to visit their adult children, but finds that only their widowed daughter-in-law receives them warmly, while the others find ways to push them aside. Without drama or fanfare, we nonetheless experience the heartbreak of their neglect.
