Capital Celluloid 2017 - Day 187: Sat Jul 8

Tokyo Story (Ozu, 1953): Prince Charles Cinema, 12.30pm

This 35mm presentation is part of the Classic Film season at the Prince Charles. Details here.

Chicago Reader review:
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 (and above) is the trailer.
