Movie Meetup - Tokyo Family

We are meeting to watch the above film at 11.25 am.

Synopsis:

A modern-day retelling of one of cinema's greatest achievements.

Yasujiro Ozu's 1953 masterpiece Tokyo Story is regarded by many as the greatest film in the history of Japanese cinema, a finely wrought tale of human fragility amidst the rampant social upheaval of post-war Japan. In Tokyo Family, 81-year-old modern master Yôji Yamada transports Ozu's opus to the Japan of today - a country where economic hope has waned and the threat to tradition is more pronounced than ever.

Elderly Shukichi and Tomiko swap their remote island home for Tokyo to spend some time with their three grown-up and very different children. Overcome with the stresses of the city, the kids absently shuffle their parents from one to the other, but when Tomiko has a stroke, everything they thought they valued is thrown into devastating relief.

A modern day rendition of Ozu's masterpiece, Tokyo Story. In TOKYO FAMILY, 81-year-old modern master Yôji Yamada transports Ozu's opus to the Japan of today. "A sensitive portrait of a contemporary Japanese family whose members’ actions are alternately loving, sad, amusing, thought-provoking and touching.
