“The poet of family life” Derek Malcolm

A constant fixture in critic’s polls, Yasujiro 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.

The BFI is proud to release a brand new 4K restoration of this classic film, for audiences old and new to discover.
