On its 70th anniversary the BFI have released a restored version of this classic film that is never off lists of the best films ever made. Tokyo Story is Yasujiro Ozu’s most enduring masterpiece and a beautifully nuaunced exploration of filial duty, expectation and regret. From a simple tale of an elderly couple’s visit to their grown-up children in Tokyo, Ozu draws a compelling contrast between the measured dignity of age and the hurried insensitivity of a younger generation. A superb family tale that stands the test of time.
