Film Series: Tokyo Story

1953. Dir. Yasujiro Ozu. With Chishu Ryu, Setsuko Hara. 136 min.

An elderly couple visit their children in Tokyo. From this simple scenario Ozu builds a work of earthshaking emotional import, framing with quiet observational precision the fear of looming mortality and the toll taken by modernity on tradition. Named the greatest movie of all time by SIGHT AND SOUND’S recent poll of film directors.
Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. Free.
