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

"Tokyo Story" is my favorite film of all time. I really love this film, it made me think of my parents... my life sucks, my relationship with parents is not so good,there's big generation gap... but this film made me feel glad to be my parent's child,the most beautiful person in my life.

Movie Reviews (part 14) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: 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. It has a lot of dialogue that make you sit in reflection afterwards. The Downs: It spit in the face for anyone expecting a fast film."

“"Tokyo Story" is my favorite film of all time. I really love this film, it made me think of my parents... my life sucks, my relationship with parents is not so good,there's big generation gap... but this film made me feel glad to be my parent's child,the most beautiful person in my life.

For the film itself,it's a masterpiece of cinema...a genius filmmaking... so powerful and profound,simple but graceful,quiet but speak sincerely,it's the most powerful and truthful film about Life,everyone is Alone.

Tokyo Story looks more like memories of "real life" than "a movie"., and because I am asian,this film very close to me,the house,the people,the culture,,like the way it happened in my ordinary daily life.” read more

"1st viewing, Cinema 18 March 2014 Directed by: Yasujiro Ozu Vahva elokuva, jonka katselemista häiritsi melko pahasti suomennoksen kämäisyys. "

My movie year 2014 (478 movies items)

"9.1. (Kirjasto-DVD) Tokyo Storyn esittämä totuus on karmiva: lapsi unohtaa vanhempansa oman taipaleensa myötä, pariskunnan edesmenneen pojan lesken ollessa ainut näistä vilpittömästi välittämä ihminen - hänkin siksi, ettei enää omista elämää. Vierailullakin lapset yrittävät rahan avulla saada vanhempansa pyörimästä jaloista. Elämä on katoavaista ja kuolo korjaa kun korjaa. Kaikesta tästä huolimatta elokuvan vanhuksista huokuu levollisuus, tyytyväisyys taakse jäänee"
