Tokyo Story (DVD)


A constant fixture in critics' polls, Yasujiro Ozu's most enduring masterpiece is a beautifully nuanced exploration of filial duty, expectation and regret


This title is temporarily out of stock. 


Yasujirô Ozu directs this 1950s Japanese classic that revolves around ageing, mortality and intergenerational tensions.

When elderly couple Tomi and Shukichi Hirayama (Chieko Higashiyama and Chishu Ryu) travel from their rural village home to Tokyo to visit their married son and daughter their reception is disappointing. Met with selfish indifference and impatience by their children and their grandchildren, they are soon packed off to a spa - but when Tomi falls ill, her descendants are forced to re-evaluate their priorities.
