Tokyo Story

From Fri 15 Sep to Sat 21 Oct

A profoundly stirring evocation of elemental humanity and universal heartbreak, Tokyo Story is the crowning achievement of the unparalleled Yasujiro Ozu. Tokyo Story follows an aging couple’s journey to visit their grown children in bustling post-war Tokyo and surveys the rich and complex world of family life with the director’s customary delicacy and incisive perspective on social mores. Featuring lovely performances from Ozu regulars Chishû Ryû and Setsuko Hara, Tokyo Story plumbs and deepens the director’s recurring theme of generational conflict, creating one of cinema’s best films.
