Tokyo Story

In cinemas 1 September. Also available on BFI Player and BFI Blu-ray.

An amazing film, delicate, beautiful, and full of a complicated wise loveJane Campion

A constant fixture in critics’ polls, Tokyo Story is Yasujiro Ozu’s most enduring masterpiece and a beautifully nuaunced exploration of filial duty, expectation and regret. From a 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.
