Tokyo Story - 4k restoration

Tokyo Story - 4k restoration U

Director Yasujirô Ozu With Chishû Ryû, Chieko Higashiyama, Setsuko Hara

Japan 1953. - English subtitles

An elderly couple visit their grown-up offspring in Tokyo, but find most of them preoccupied with work and the trappings of post-war city life.

Though loosely based on Leo McCarey’s Make Way for Tomorrow, Ozu’s best-known film feels entirely characteristic of his wry, wise response to the vicissitudes of modern family life; it builds, calmly but unflinchingly, to a coda of enormous poignancy


Join resident BFI programmer Ben Reynolds for a post screening discussion. This is an informal chance for audiences to chat about their reactions to the film over a drink in The Gallery or Cellar Bar, as well as an exciting opportunity to see British Independant films and international films not often found locally.
