1953 | Yasujiro Ozu
Recently voted the greatest film of all time by the filmmakers who participated in the latest Sight & Sound magazine poll to determine the best movies ever made (it finished #3 on the critics’ list), Ozu’s most famous film follows an elderly couple as they travel to Tokyo to visit their grown children. But it soon becomes apparent that their presence is a burden to their busy offspring. This sublime portrait of intergenerational relationships stars two of Ozu’s greatest and most iconic actors, Chishu Ryu and Setsuko Hara.
