Tokyo Story (1953) (Cert U)

A constant fixture in critics’ polls, Tokyo Story is Yasujiro Ozu’s most enduring masterpiece and a beautifully nuanced exploration of filial duty, expectation and regret. From the simple tale of an elderly couple’s visit to their grown-up children in Tokyo, Ozu draws a compelling contrast between the measured dignity of age and the hurried insensitivity of a younger generation.
