5.0 out of 5 stars "Look ye also while life lasts" 12 Jan 2009

"Tokyo Story" is a wonderful little observation of life. It concerns an elderly couple who live in a rural location and go on a visit to the big city to see their two children. But their children lead very hectic lives making a living in this bustling new post war Japan. They have their own lives and this consumes them. Time slips by at the great cost of relationships. Sadly the children simply farm their elderly parents off. They are a nuisance and they are simply in the way. The grandchildren are rude and ill disciplined the parents too stressed to deal with them. All else is sacrificed in the mad pursuit of material possessions. Does all this begin to sound familiar?

There are valuable lifes lessons contained in this very beautiful film. Time passes very quickly and relationships need to be worked at. Honour your Father and your Mother. Spend time with your children. Enjoy your time with them for it is precious. This film has not dated at all because all generations face the same dilemmas. It is still a sobering lesson to us.

At the end of the film the Grandmother dies and the children have lost the opportunity. Do they care? No, one has the cheek to ask for one of the Grandmothers personal items. Ironically the one who truly cares is the wife of a deceased son killed in the war. She is everything their own children are not. So goodness is not entirely put on the shelf. At the end of the film the old man sits in isolation in his house pondering on his long life. What is the sum of it?

Watch this film and take in the lessons it teaches us. The time we have is precious and we need to use it wisely. Lifes frenetic pace may steal from us those things that are most valuable.

"The wonder of the world, the beauty and the power, the shapes of things, their colours, lights and shades, these I saw. Look ye also while life lasts".

4.0 out of 5 stars Citizen Kane Beater? 5 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
I heard that this had displaced the Orson Welles classic from the #1 spot. Is it a better film? Hard to say. It is certainly a very interesting film about a family which has many characteristics of families i know in my own part of the world - Europe. I will definitely watch it again, and probably again and again; something I have not done with Citizen Kane.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute delight 2 Feb 2012
Who would have thought the straightforward tale of parents visiting their children in the big city could be so engaging? A fascinating glimpse into post-war Japan. There is a remarkable contrast between the bustle, scale and industry of Tokyo and the peaceful, slow country sea town that is the family home. Yet this is done in an understated way, the story cutting to shots of the respective places and letting the scenes speak for themselves. The messages about how people lived and how society was changing are obvious but are allowed to reveal themselves in their own time. It is amazing and saddening to realise that some of the ills of modern, industrial, consumer society were already present 60 years ago and are not constrained to Europe and the USA. A joy to watch, just sit, stop thinking, open your mind and let the film unfold. You may discover something. Thanks to Seedhouse Rare Movies for importing this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tokyo Story - a muted masterpiece 9 May 2010
A wonderful, universal story. Slow moving, but this is just right to give you time to adjust to the characters.
You are invited to make your own judgments, as the parents are very tolerant towards the members of the younger generation, who obviously have less and less time for them.
Very funny at moments in an unostentatious way, and more and more moving as we reach the end. Paradoxically, it is the person who receives the least who gives the most. Copy quality sometimes a bit poor, but this does not prevent you from admiring the film.
