남부 일본의 항구 도시에 사는 노부부가 도쿄에 살고 있는 자식들을 만나기 위해 길은 나선다. 처음에는 부모를 반기는 듯했으나 자신들의 삶을 보살피기에 바쁜 자녀들은 바쁘다는 핑계로 시골에서 올라온 부모를 아타미로 여행을 보낸다. 아타미의 온천은 술과 마작으로 밤의 여흥을 즐기는 젊은이들이 북적거리는 곳으로, 노부부에게는 적합하지 않은 곳이었고 노부부는 예정보다 일찍 동경으로 돌아온다. 하지만 자식이 둘이나 살고 있는 동경에서도 머물 곳을 찾지 못한 부부는 미망인인 작은 며느리 노리코에게 눈물어린 하룻밤 신세를 지고 다시 집으로 돌아오게 된다. 아타미에서 노부인이 느꼈던 어지러움증은 돌연 죽음으로 이어지고, 이제는 자식들이 어머니의 임종을 맞기 위해 고향 오노미치로 오게 된다. 묘지에 들어찬 비석처럼 모여있던 다른 자식들은 이 핑계 저 핑계로 빨리 고향을 떠나가고 노리코만 이 홀로된 아버지의 옆을 지키고 아버지는 외로운 며느리에게 세상을 이야기해준다. 사랑하는 사람들의 배경으로만 존재하던 며느리는 빈자리를 하나 더 남기고 떠나간다.

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.

A classic film Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I was forced to watch this film for film class, as Ozu is considered one of the classical directors. Because I'm currently hating this class, I went in with ridiculously low expectations. However, this film blew me away. Ozu's stylistics differences and the fact that for once we were watching an Asian movie were the things that initially made me pay attention to the film (especially since I needed to read the subtitles). However, once the film got going (and it does take a while), the story just grips you. It's a simple film of an old couple going to the big city to see how their children are. However, this "simple" story has a profound effect because it demonstrates the theme of love in a subtle, yet deep way. It may be hard to watch this film initially, but I promise you that it'll be worth it.
(Note: If you hate watching subtitled movies (and this movie's in Japanese dialogue), don't care for "old" movies, or just dislike movies that make you think, then you should avoid this one. It's not a mess-up-your-mind kind of movie, but it will make you think about the culture you're in, the love you have, and the family you're with.)
