Tokyo Story

3/13/1972; 135 minutes

An elderly couple journey to Tokyo to visit their children and are confronted by indifference, ingratitude and selfishness. When the parents are packed off to a resort by their impatient children, the film deepens into an unbearably moving meditation on mortality. (Japan, 1953, 134 mins, dir. Yasujiro Ozu, with Chishu Ryu & Chieko Higashiyama, Japanese with English subtitles) (#3465)
