導演︰小津安二郎
Director: Yasujiro Qzu

  最動人的故事從來毋須峰迴路轉。廣島鄉間年邁的父母遠道到東京探望兒女,滿心以為兒女成才,到達時才發覺他們不外如是。更慘的是兒女兩家人各有各忙,冷落了兩老,反而得陣亡次子的遺孀殷勤照料。母親旅途操勞,回家後一病不起,子女回鄉奔喪,匆匆便打道回府。老人經歷的失落,反映城鄉對比與兩代矛盾在這個年代特有的困境。孤伶的父親在片末說:一個人生活日子特別長。話音未散,鏡頭落在緩緩駛過的渡船。畫面無言,看著更叫人難耐。要認識小津安二郎征服西方世界的「東方」風範,要懷緬笠智眾、原節子的風采,又怎能不數《東京物語》。

  An aging couple, Tomi and Sukichi, travels from their rural village to visit their two married children in bustling, post-war Tokyo. Their reception is disappointing: too busy to entertain them, their children send them off to a health spa. After Tomi falls ill she and Sukichi return home, while the children, grief-stricken, hasten to be with her. Without much moral judgement, Ozu depicts the widening gap between generations and the strain of modernisation on personal relations with great sensitivity and sympathy. An elegy on the disintegration of the traditional Japanese family.

One of the all-time greats Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
With "Tokyo Story", director Ozu Yasujiro employs the simplest of stories to create one of the greatest films of all time. Elderly couple Shukichi (Chishu Ryu) and Tomi Hirayama (Higashiyama Chieko) journey from their remote hometown to Tokyo to visit their adult offspring, the doctor Koichi (Yamamura So) and the beauty parlor owner Shige (Sugimura Haruko). Koichi and Shige, however, are caught up in the busy-ness of their daily lives and so fail to offer much time at all to spend with their loving parents. Only their childless daughter-in-law Noriko (Hara Setsuko), whose husband died eight years earlier in the final year of the second world war, takes the time from her work and personal life to welcome the old couple.

Koichi and Shige, on the other hand, rather than embracing the old folks, dispatch them to a hot springs spa characterized by loud music, drinking, and all-night mahjong games. Shukichi and Tomi take the hint and decide that it is time to head home. On the journey home, Tomi falls seriously ill. Ironically, with Tomi in a coma from which she will not awake, her adult children now make the time to return to their hometown to grieve the loss of the mother whom days earlier they ignored.

The film, while developing timeless themes, is anchored in the Japan of 1953, in which the nation was struggling to get off its back after the devastation of World War 2. Ozu brings his distinctive visual style to the film, using his characteristic tatami-mat camera angles, having his characters speak directly into the camera, and employing connecting shots featuring trains and smokestacks. "Tokyo Story" boasts several notable performances, particularly Chishu Ryu convincingly playing a man a good 20 years older than Chishu's actual age, Hara Setsuko particularly brilliant in a late scene in which she confesses her conflicting emotions to her father-in-law, and Sugimura Haruko as the unfailingly cheap and calculating hairdresser. Truly, a cinematic classic.
