Pentland Film Society: 21st February Tokyo Story

February 21st   Tokyo Story
Dir: Yasujiro Ozu
1953, 136 mins, Japan, Cert U
This recently re-­released classic tells the story of a couple
who leave their rural village to visit their two married
children and grandchildren who live in bustling post­war
Tokyo. To their distress, they find that their family is too
busy to spend time with them and the only real warmth
they enjoy comes from their widowed daughter-in-law. A
simple narrative but the rich and complex characterization
of the family members results in a film of emotional power.
Universally acclaimed as a masterpiece by film directors
and critics.
