Perhaps the greatness of Tokyo Story lies in the fact that it never judges its characters or their actions. It merely observes, almost making voyeurs of us, the viewers.

Parenthood is not for everyone, but we all have parents, we forever hold a sense of regret towards them, especially in the oriental culture, filial piety is the foremost virtue to measure an individual’s worth, at least viewed by other family members.

keep reading my review on my blog, google: cinema omnivore, thanks!

Tokyo Story is a beautifully made film with good performances, revolutionary cinematography techniques, and an emotionally engaging story. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a heart felt family driven film.
