Tokyo Family

Tokyo Family ★★★★

Tôkyô kazoku (2013)


A really interesting homage/remake of the Ozu classic "Tokyo Story", this one might be one of the best performed dramas of 2013, a true surprise, even though I was familiar with all of the beats of what was going to happen. After seeing this I can't help but notice that I do hold dearly the Ozu movie in my heart, and that maybe I am underrating it a little. But I'm guessing that I'll let some time pass anyway, mainly because I've had my fill of Tokyoesque films for a while, and this one was really good for what it managed to do with such a classic film.
