Yasujiro Ozu's newly restored classic Tokyo Story, considered by many as one of the finest films of all time, follows an aging couple, Tomi and Shukichi, as they journey from their rural village to visit their two married children in bustling, postwar Tokyo. Their reception however, is disappointing: too busy to entertain them, their children send them off to the hot springs. After Tomi falls ill, she and Shukuchi return home; the children, grief-stricken, hasten to be with her. From a simple tale unfolds one of the greatest of all Japanese Films. Starring Ozu regulars Chishu Ryu and Setsuko Hara, the film reprises one of the director's favorite themes - that of generational conflict - in a way that is quintessentially Japanese, and yet universal in its appeal.
