"June 4th Directed by: Wim Wenders Unexpectedly, this movie was just a travelogue of Wim Wender's trip to Japan for a very long portion of the runtime. Which, if you were to tell me that beforehand I may have assumed I wouldn't like this too much, but Wim Wenders is more than interesting enough a person and definitely a more than interesting enough filmmaker. I was totally satisfied with what Tokyo-Ga was giving me, but then they really got into what the point of the documentary was. Which is r"

" An exploration that almost feels like a Godard or Marker essay. An unorthodox, somewhat meandering doc that seems essential viewing for any fan of Ozu's work. Wenders mourns cinema's loss of one of its most special practitioners using Ozu's favorite city, Tokyo, to look at how the world has changed since his passing. Wenders also memorably spends time with some of Ozu's closest collaborators. "

"6.7. 2011 Wim Wenders travels to Tokyo only to find out that the city he admires so much doesn't really exist anymore. Tokyo, as it is seen in the films by Yasujiro Ozu, is gone and now it is strangled by modern technology and depression. At times it seems that Wenders tries to focus on too many things at the same time, but in its entirety this is still a charming and nostalgic documentary full of genuine feelings."

"13.1. Wendersin dokumentti Ozun Japanista on kyllä välillä todella haikeaa katseltavaa kun wanhat herrat muistelevat aikojaan Ozun kanssa. Välillä näytetään kuvaa 80-luvun Japanista ja keskitytään johonkin lähes täysin "epäoleellisiin" asioihin, mikä tuo elokuvalle vain lisäarvoa, koska Ozun Japania ei enää ole olemassa siinä mielessä kuin sitä alun perin lähdettiin etsimään. Erilainen matkaohjelma, josta tuli tavallaan mieleen jopa Madventures."

"20.11.2009, TV Aika subjektiivisesta näkökulmasta tehty dokkari, joka yleisolemuksensa kanssa onnistui vangitsemaan ainakin mut ruudun eteen ihan täysin. Kamera on kuin ihmissilmät, se vaeltelee ympäri 80-lukulaista Tokiota kuvaten vähän milloin mitäkin piknikistä hautausmaalla metroasemalle, ja lisäksi haastattelee erittäin kiinnostavaa tekstiä heittävää Werner Herzogia ja kahta Ozun kanssa työskennellyttä ihmistä, joista ihan erityisesti mua kosketti tää viimeisen vartin a"
