A constant fixture in critic’s polls, Yasujito Ozu’s most enduring masterpiece, Tokyo Story, is a beautifully nuanced exploration of filial duty, expectation and regret. From the simple tale of an elderly husband and wife’s visit to Tokyo to see their grown-up children, Ozu draws a compelling contrast between the measured dignity of age and the hurried insensitivity of a younger generation.
Also included here is Ozu’s incisive satire Brothers and Sisters of the Toda Family (1941), which explores similar themes as, following the death of her husband, Mrs Toda and her youngest daughter receive a frosty reception from extended family.
The BFI is proud to release a brand new 4K restoration of this classic film, for audiences old and new to discover.
