Tokyo Story to launch the 2017 Adelaide Cinematheque.

When an elderly couple travel to a rapidly-rebuilding Tokyo to visit their children, they are met with unexpected indifference, ingratitude and selfishness. As the vastly different priorities of pre- and post-war Japan collide, Yasujiro Ozu's materpiece deepens into a sublime meditation on family, ambition and mortality. Tokyo Story is a subtle yet overwhelmingly emotional drama from one of Japan's greatest directors whose masterful eye and scrupulous attention to character has influenced countless filmmakers around the world and is listed as one of the finest films ever made (Halliwell’s, Sight and Sound).
