Tokyo Story



Tokyo Story


WEDNESDAY JULY 22 Channel 039

From one of Japan’s most revered directors, Yasujiro Ozu's Tokyo Story centres on a provincial Japanese family. An elderly couple travel from rural Japan to Tokyo on a once-in-a-lifetime visit to see their adult children. On arrival, they discover that the big city and the priorities of their family are distinctly different to their expectations. Lovingly restored and remastered, Yasujiro Ozu’s post-war masterwork is a beautiful and poetic exploration of age, family and the fragility of human relationships.  “The greatest film of all time” Sight & Sound magazine. Starring Chishu Ryu, Chieko Higashiyama & So Yamamura.
