A profound, wise masterpiece of exquisite formal perfection and overwhelming emotional power.
Dir Yasujirô Ozu
With Chishû Ryû, Chieko Higashiyama, Setsuko Hara, Haruko Sugimura
An elderly provincial couple (Ryû and Higashiyama) travel to Tokyo to visit their busy grown-up children, but only their widowed daughter-in-law (Hara) shows them patient kindness. From this simple narrative, Ozu and his co-writer Kôgo Noda crafted a profound, wise masterpiece of exquisite formal perfection and overwhelming emotional power. One of the great films of all time, presented here in a pristine new 4K restoration.
