Tokyo Family

Took me too long to watch this. Looking at the film independently, it is great. Calm, with an emotional undercurrent. Yamada has learned from his master the art of "show, don't tell". The way he updates the story doesn't feel forced nor does it feel by the numbers.

But, to be honest, the film made me like Tokyo Story more. Ozu really hit upon universal themes that can be applied and performed in any decade.
