The 20th century’s problem, said Cocteau, would be that the populations had began to think.

This is the most user-recommended review of Tôkyô Monogatari, on IMdb.

------------------------------

Two women are sitting on tatami mats. They are smiling and talking. One of them says, "Isn't life depressing?" Wow... that pretty much says it.

Tokyo Story is defenitely one of the finest movies ever made. Easy. I don't care what anyone says: slow or not, this is one of Ozu's finest films. Very few movies have made my cry, but I did indeed weep at this movie. All of the acting performances are very believeable, especially Hara's. The interesting knee- level tatami cinematography suits the film perfectly. Even the music is impeccable.
What really gets me with Tokyo Story is how stunningly realistic it is. From the dialogue to the story, everything feels like real life. No matter what language you speak, what culture or country you hail from, this element is universal.
It's pretty much perfect... every character is fleshed out, there are no plot holes left open... I can't find anything to complain about it! 50 years after its release and it's still very contemporary... damn.

I give it **** out of ****.

67/77 “readers” recommend it.
