Yasujiro Ozu's 'Tokyo Story' (Tokyo Monogatari) follows an aging couple, Tomi and Shukichi, as they journey from their rural village to visit their two married children in bustling, postwar Tokyo. Their reception, however, is disappointing: too busy to entertain the old couple, the children send them off to a health spa. After Tomi falls ill, she and Shukichi return home, while the children, grief-stricken, hasten to be with her.
Depicting classic generational conflict, this story is sure to touch your heart.
