TOKYO STORY (1953) 4 stars

Less is most definitely more when it comes to Ozu's masterpiece. So much is expressed in a single tear drop. The difficult bridge between generations is dealt with in a non-sentimental and subtle way. It may seem deceivingly simple but when explored with closer attention it becomes clear why critics and filmmakers have voted it one of the greatest film EVER made.
