Director's Biography and Filmography
An aging couple, Tomi and Sukichi, travels from their rural village to visit their two married children in bustling, post-war Tokyo. Their reception is disappointing: too busy to entertain them, their children send them off to a health spa. After Tomi falls ill she and Sukichi return home, while the children, grief-stricken, hasten to be with her. Without much moral judgement, Ozu depicts the widening gap between generations and the strain of modernisation on personal relations with great sensitivity and sympathy. An elegy on the disintegration of the traditional Japanese family.
