Release Note

Tokyo Monogatari follows an aging couple Tomi and Shukichi as they journey from their rural village to visit their two married children in bustling postwar Tokyo. Their reception however is disappointing: too busy to entertain them the children send them off to a health spa. After Tomi falls ill she and Shukichi return home while the children grief-stricken hasten to be with her. Starring Ozu regulars Chishu Ryu and Setsuko Hara the film reprises one of the director's favorite themes that of generational conflict in a way that is quintessentially Japanese and yet so universal in its appeal that it continues to resonate as one of cinema's greatest masterpieces. Other Information: Running Time: 135 Min. Black & WhiteCopyright Image Entertainment 2003. Format: DVD MOVIE

5 out of 5 stars Could have only one DVD, it would be definitely "Tokyo Story", September 14, 2008
By axbxcx
If you had to work away from home for months and could have only one DVD, what would it be? It would be definitely "Tokyo Story", and actually, it is. Why do I love this movie so much? Maybe because I am getting old, but that is not the only reason. This movie shows us all the aspects of "family" and they are quite universal. You can get a two-disc set and Disc-2 contains two documentary films, "I Lived, But..." (1983, 120 minutes) and "Talking with OZU" (1993, 30 minutes). Its a good bargain!
