Yasujiro Ozu’s “Tokyo Story”:  Tokyo Story is a 1953 Japanese film that tells the story of an aging couple who travel to Tokyo to visit their grown children.  The film contrasts the behavior of their children, who are too busy to pay them much attention, with that of their widowed daughter-in-law, who treats them with kindness.  Widely regarded as Ozu’s masterpiece, it is often cited as one of the greatest films ever made.  In 2012, it was voted the best film of all time in a poll of film directors by Sight & Sound magazine. Open discussion to follow.  OSHER Instructor Don Watson
