An aging couple takes the long journey from their small seaside village to visit their adult children in bustling post-war Tokyo. Their elder son and daughter are too busy to pay them much attention, and so it falls to Noriko, the widow of their younger son who was killed in the war, to keep her in-laws company.

Tokyo Story is widely regarded as Yasujiro Ozu’s masterpiece and is often cited as one of the greatest films ever made. In 2012, it was voted as the best film of all time in a poll of film directors by Sight & Sound magazine.
