Often cited as one of the greatest films ever made, Yasujiro Ozu’s Tokyo Story has been a classic since its release in 1953. This masterpiece follows an aging couple’s trip to visit their grown children in Tokyo, and the generational conflict that arises as they discover how they’re seen as a burden to their family.
The film offers insight into the complex relationships between parents and children who do not need them anymore, with a beautiful backdrop of postwar Tokyo. The film is a bittersweet look at the slow fracturing of the Japanese family, but contains resounding messages for anyone.
