東京物語 | Tōkyō Monogatari

Yasujirô Ozu Japonia, 1953

Wee Hunk's rating of the film Tokyo Story

I'm not the right audience for Ozu, but I can appreciate what he does. There's an amazing scene near the end where Kyoko is talking to Noriko. They are talking about people being selfish. Kyoko asks "Isn't life disappointing?" and Noriko smiles pleasantly and says "Yes it is".
