Tokyo Story: The Criterion Collection (Blu-ray + DVD Combo)

A profoundly stirring evocation of elemental humanity and universal heartbreak, Tokyo Story is the crowning achievement of the unparalleled Yasujiro Ozu. The film, which follows an aging couple's journey to visit their grown children in bustling postwar Tokyo, surveys the rich and complex world of family life with the director's customary delicacy and incisive perspective on social mores. Featuring lovely performances from Ozu regulars Chishuu Ryu and Setsuko Hara, Tokyo Story plumbs and deepens the director's recurring themes of generational conflict, creating what is without questions one of cinema's mightiest masterpieces.
