Tokyo Story (1953)

  • tokyostoryposter

Japan | 136 min | NR | 35mm | Dir. Yasujirō Ozu

Ozu's subtle epic of a broken Japanese family is universally praised as one the key classics of cinema history. The film centers around a husband and wife who interact with various members of their estranged family. Ozu, one of cinema's most famous stylists, finds an emotionally rich story in this dense map of characters and personalities. Ranking #3 on BFI's 2012 list of greatest films of all time (and #1 on the director's list), Ozu's classic is being shown here on 35mm.

"Jane Austen, Anton Chekhov—these are the artists who come to mind when we confront a story told through such tactful revelations of temperament and states of mind." - David Bordwell
