The Foreign Film Group – ‘Tokyo Story’ (Japan, 1953)

Tokyo Story (directed by Yasujirō Ozu ) tells the story of an aging couple who travel to Tokyo to visit their grown children. The film contrasts the behavior of their children, who are too busy to pay them much attention, and their widowed daughter-in-law, who treats them with kindness. Tokyo Story is widely regarded as Ozu’s masterpiece and is often cited as one of the greatest films ever made.
