  1. Neide Ramos's rating of the film Tokyo Twilight

    Slow paced and you might be tempted to leave it at first, but if you don’t, damn, it gets to a whole new level of dark. Really interesting to witness a family environment that feels so real, but also awkward and unsettling in itself by the way emotions are communicated - or not - making for heartbreaking lies and deception while facing and accepting the loneliness they bring.

  2. Alvise Narduzzi's rating of the film Tokyo Twilight

    Non so cosa sia più bello, se il viso tormentato della giovane Akiko o la magnifica staticità delle scene girate dal Maestro, interrotta solo dai movimenti laterali delle porte scorrevoli giapponesi. Narrazione e maestria cinematografica si muovono in coppia, tra sale da Mahjong e piccoli bar dove si serve il sake caldo, coronando quello che è il primo capolavoro triste della leggenda del cinema nipponico. Magnifico.

  3. Ruiz Buñuel's rating of the film Tokyo Twilight

    A bold piece of dark melodrama.

  4. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Tokyo Twilight

    If hugs were allowed in Japanese tradition or civilization, would Yasujiro Ozu have directed so beautiful movies ? Highly recommended.

  5. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film Tokyo Twilight

  6. Ozu_Teapot's rating of the film Tokyo Twilight

    (4.5) I wrote that The Munekata Sisters was probably Ozu's darkest film, but then there's this. A family's inability to communicate and share problems and concerns leads to a heartbreaking tragedy.

  7. Kevin Costner's rating of the film Tokyo Twilight

  8. HSBilly's rating of the film Tokyo Twilight

    the final black and white ozu's but he make it the bleakest of his works. and the regular joyful scoring becomes haunting.

  9. edgar edgar's rating of the film Tokyo Twilight

  10. Aardsy's rating of the film Tokyo Twilight

    Dark melodrama in a cold, understated package.

  11. Muraki's rating of the film Tokyo Twilight

  12. Mindaugas Foksa's rating of the film Tokyo Twilight

    I see it as a study of trauma. Out of ignorance people do horrible things to each other, often with awful consequences that affects victims, perpetrators and those around... A very unsentimental view of human relationships.

  13. Spiritchaser's rating of the film Tokyo Twilight

    There are a few instances in one's life when he stumbles upon something so stirring that he perceives in his own worldview a consummate truth which, up to that single moment of fortuity or even divine providence, has perhaps been there lying dormant just yearning to be revealed in full. Every Ozu film is a door into one's own life.

  14. Ricardo Branco's rating of the film Tokyo Twilight

  15. tomasfreitas's rating of the film Tokyo Twilight

  16. ijol's rating of the film Tokyo Twilight

    It is his darkest film, which is not his forte compared to Mizoguchi. That's why it's not his strongest for me.

  17. Stevie's rating of the film Tokyo Twilight

    Very dark for Ozu, similar to A Hen in The Wind and Woman of Tokyo in that respect. One of my favourites from Ozu with fantastic performances and the more melodramatic nature of the film works well. Setsuko Hara-phenomenal.

  18. Ben Dooley's rating of the film Tokyo Twilight

    A terrific and very dark Ozu classic. As always, an intricate script, with complex parallels between the characters and a complete refusal to offer easy answers. There is also a good deal of mystery to this film, which felt new to me with Ozu, reflecting the secrets and lies that remain between the characters even by the end of the film. Powerful stuff!

  19. joey Noodles's rating of the film Tokyo Twilight

    That's an image from Tokyo Story...

  20. TFCHooligan69's rating of the film Tokyo Twilight

    A great Ozu film. Perhaps one of his best. Poor Akiko. :(

  21. Liga dos Blogues Cinematográficos's rating of the film Tokyo Twilight

    Um filme que exemplifica bem a filmografia de Ozu e seu hábito de retratar dramas familiares. Aqui, o foco está no afeto paterno e no orgulho das aparências, mas há também o reconhecimento do erro e a perda desse orgulho. É uma obra que demonstra seres falíveis, que desistem quando a pressão aumenta e que não têm vergonha de demonstrar a necessidade de um gole para suportar o peso | João Paulo Barreto

  22. Lumière's rating of the film Tokyo Twilight

    Tokyo Twilight" was Ozu's last black and white film and it's probably one of his darkest films.

  23. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Tokyo Twilight

    A sad, brutally honest film from Yazujiro Ozu, showing a dark side of him that wasn't present in the other films I have seen by the maestro. Simply brilliant!

  24. Cbarky99's rating of the film Tokyo Twilight

    If every unhappy family is unhappy in their own way, then why does this film feel so universal?
