Slow, deliberate pace and heavy realism is what makes Yasujiro Ozu's film, Tokyo Story, a timeless classic. Mind you, this film is not filled with well-known Oscar-nominated/winners all in one place nor does it have characters that look more plastic, wax-models and less humans. They look human just like you or I. They look realistic, they talk realistic, their expressions are realistic and ... read more

" The definition of a realistic family drama. The camera or the technical presentation never seem to want to do anything glossy or beautiful but instead just record action as it happens. The family characters feel like someone you know in your own one and the dialogue makes me sit in reflection afterwards. "

"4th of October, DVD Tokyo Story on vähäeleisen koskettavasti kuvattu draamaelokuva, jossa teollistunut, moderni Japani sekä perijapanilaiset perhearvot kohtaavat toisensa. Aikuisiksi kasvaneilta lapsilta ei enää liikene kasvavien työkiireiden keskellä viettää aikaa ikääntyneiden vanhempiensa kanssa. Kaunis ja koskettava elokuva, jota ei turhaan pidetä yhtenä kaikkien aikojen parhaimmista elokuvista. Tämän voi myös nähdä eräänlaisena vedenjakajana uuden ja vanhan japanilaisen"
