9 / 10 (6585)


An ageing couple travel from their rural village to visit their two married children in bustling, postwar Tokyo. Their son and daughter don’t have much time to spend with their parents, and so it falls to Noriko, the widow of their younger son who was killed in the war, to keep her in-laws company.

MUBI's take

A masterpiece in radical subtlety, Yasujiro Ozu’s Tokyo Story is less concerned with plot than it is feeling. Crafted in his compassionate, contemplative style, this sensitive, quiet miracle of a film patiently reveals universal truths: about families, and moreover, the cycles and rhythms of time.
