About 4K Film: Tokyo Story

An elderly couple visit their grown-up offspring in Tokyo, but find most of them preoccupied with work and the trappings of post-war city life in this much loved classic of Japanese cinema.

Though loosely based on Leo McCarey’s Make Way for Tomorrow, Yasujiro Ozu’s film feels entirely characteristic of his wry, wise response to the vicissitudes of modern family life; it builds, calmly but unflinchingly, to a coda of enormous poignancy.
