  1. armsoreal's rating of the film Tokyo-Ga

    I feel tremendous gratitude towards Wim Wenders for making this film, but would have enjoyed it more thoroughly without his commentary. Still a favorite nonetheless.

  2. grassybrownie's rating of the film Tokyo-Ga

    too much pretentious commentary which is a huge letdown, otherwise I'd give it 5 stars (mostly because of Ozu, Ryu, Atsuta and the indisputable magic of Japan)

  3. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film Tokyo-Ga

    It’s not that this needed to be some sort of tribute to Ozu and Ozu’s Japan, but I don’t really see how Wenders has any real focus here. He meets Chris Marker midway through the film, and that’s when I was like, “Oh this is like a not so good Sans Soleil.”

  6. meiguiweisheng_xiang's rating of the film Tokyo-Ga

  7. yaz's rating of the film Tokyo-Ga

    Wender's narration killed it for me. He is narrating like a reader and not a director.

  8. FISCHER's rating of the film Tokyo-Ga

    Une oeuvre assez vaine qui ne vaut le détour que pour l'approche passionnée et documentée de la vie et de l'oeuvre du grand réalisateur Yasujiro Ozu... www.cinefiches.com

  9. ermete polpette's rating of the film Tokyo-Ga

  10. Aardsy's rating of the film Tokyo-Ga

    Without a camera I'd be able to better remember.

  11. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Tokyo-Ga

    One of Wenders' finest films, because it implies more than it shows-- about Ozu, but much more besides.

  12. Luis Pires's rating of the film Tokyo-Ga

    If I ever went to Japan/Tokyo, I'd be Wenders; making a fool of myself while being fascinated by every single thing.

  13. lina maj's rating of the film Tokyo-Ga

    Wenders is really good at creating diaries. Uses great soudtrack too. Tokyo has changed even more since the modern times of 1985. Werner Herzog was a bit too much.

  14. Matthew Martens's rating of the film Tokyo-Ga

    Would make a fine quadruple bill with Sans Soleil, Cafe Lumiere, and an Ozu of your choosing. Throw in an extra Wenders feature (The Goalie's Anxiety at the Penalty Kick, perhaps) and you'll have exquisitely killed yet another all-too-deserving night or day. I could hardly believe the soundtrack wasn't by Haruomi Hosono; its melodies and sonorities alike evoked memories of nights on galactic railroads.

  15. HSBilly's rating of the film Tokyo-Ga

    "ozu got the best out of me and i gave him my best."

  16. Luz Sabina's rating of the film Tokyo-Ga

    Homenaje a Ozu. Herzog y Marker...el cámara de Ozu grande!

  17. Mars in Aries's rating of the film Tokyo-Ga

  18. M Klein's rating of the film Tokyo-Ga

    A salutory warning for any film fan who goes 'in search of ...' Still, the bit with Ozu's cameraman is very moving - Ozu really inspired devotion. Also, I was wondering as I looked at the elderly Chishu Ryu who he reminded me of ... until I realised he reminded me of the younger Ryu.

  19. s1gh6's rating of the film Tokyo-Ga

    Would be the best movie in the history if turn off sound. But I rate it 4, because video is still marvelous.

  20. Galen's rating of the film Tokyo-Ga

    i lost all trust in wenders' mostly banal commentary when he started speaking over chishu ryu and yuharu atsuta. what an unacceptably rude gesture.

  21. Hani's rating of the film Tokyo-Ga

    The visual narrative was amazing enough to make Wender's narration unnecessary. The sequence of making the pretend food is my favorite. It almost made me wanna break the TV.

  22. GORGEOUS's rating of the film Tokyo-Ga

    that interview with chishu ryu ~___~

  23. Laura Hilton-Smith's rating of the film Tokyo-Ga

    No.16 - A wonderful and interesting film, my first 5 star rating this year. A film essay that portrays abstract elements of modern Tokyo against the the brilliant films of Ozu and touching interviews with the people that worked with him.

  24. David Huxley's rating of the film Tokyo-Ga

    Although I wish he'd spent more time interviewing the cast and crew of Ozu's films, I didn't mind the discursive quality of the documentary (but, I'm still trying to figure out why he spent so much time with the fake food makers). The "Tokyo Story" clips were too long for Ozu fans, but the last part in which he interviewed Yûharu Atsuta, Ozu's cinematographer for 35 years, was both enlightening and quite emotional.
