Capital Celluloid 2012 - Day 37: Monday Feb 6

Tokyo Story (Ozu, 1953): Riverside Studios Cinema, 6.10pm

Chicago Reader review of a film regularly voted one of the best of all time:


'The film that introduced Yasujiro Ozu, one of Japan's greatest filmmakers, to American audiences (1953). The camera remains stationary throughout this delicate study of conflicting generations in a modern Japanese family, save for one heartbreaking moment when Ozu tracks around a corner to discover the grandparents, alone and forgotten. A masterpiece, minimalist cinema at its finest and most complex.'

Here is the trailer.
