About Tokyo Story

Widely recognised as Ozu's greatest work, 1964 Japanese classic Tokyo Story is a monument to the pure and simple emotion the silver screen can evoke, without using cheap melodrama. A simple narrative (an old couple visiting their Tokyo families are ignored, disrespected and pushed away by their ungrateful offspring) is expertly conveyed. The despair, disappointment and loneliness (especially that felt by the decent daughter-in-law) really will make your heart ache is it subtly affects you. Oh, and bring a hanky as the end is an absolute tear-jerker. Glorious stuff.
