Critic Reviews of "Tokyo Story"Village VoiceNovember 23, 2010
Ozu's long shots, knee-high camera placement, and collapsed perspective -- as gorgeous and unsettling as a Cézanne -- gather power over the duration, but time itself is the master's most potent weapon.Time OutJanuary 05, 2010
This remains one of the most approachable and moving of all cinema's masterpieces.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
The way Ozu builds up emotional empathy for a sense of disappointment in its various characters is where his mastery lies.Minneapolis Star TribuneDecember 30, 2004
Ozu doesn't sentimentalize or condemn; he merely observes human nature with calm and clarity.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 15, 2004
It ennobles the cinema. It says, yes, a movie can help us make small steps against our imperfections.New York TimesMay 21, 2003
Luminous in its freedom from the sentimentality or the satire that so often obscure an artist's vision of normal living.Antagony & EcstasyApril 07, 2015
It's entirely possible that Tokyo Story isn't the best movie ever made. But I suspect that it might be the most perfect.ColeSmithey.comApril 06, 2015
[VIDEO ESSAY] Yasujirô Ozu's beloved masterpiece of postwar Japanese cinema speaks to audiences from all backgrounds because of the cross-generational familial truths that the prolific director/co-writer lovingly metes out.Movie MetropolisDecember 19, 2013
It soon becomes clear that they have planned their trip at a bad time; it is equally clear that every time is a bad time.ReelTalk Movie ReviewsJuly 19, 2012
With its debt to Leo McCarey's 'Make Way for Tomorrow,' Yasujiro Ozu's 'Tokyo Story' is no less true, shattering, and not for viewers fretting about unsympathetic grown-up children.Slant MagazineNovember 24, 2010
In this exquisite merging of specific and universal, infinite and infinitesimal, Tokyo Story perhaps most clearly illuminates that Ozu is not the most Japanese of filmmakers, but the most human.Projected FiguresSeptember 01, 2010
Ozu has made a film as simple in form and complex in nature as life itself. Here, every viewer is cast as a tourist, and yet will feel right at home.
