‘Tokyo Monogatari (Tokyo Story)’


Director: Yasujiro Ozu

Language: Japanese (subtitled in English)

Released last week is a new digitally remastered version of Yasujiro Ozu’s classic 1953 family drama “Tokyo Monogatari (Tokyo Story),” voted the best film ever made in the 2012 Sight & Sound magazine directors’ poll. Issued in Japan by Shochiku to celebrate the 110th anniversary of Ozu’s birth, this English-subbed DVD offers little in the way of extras, but is priced right at ¥2,800.
