Description: 'Tokyo Story' is a meditation on the generational gap and the trials of mortality. An elderly couple visits their children in a bustling Tokyo, where they are seen almost as a nuisance and shuffled off to a resort. Modernization is the torrent that tears through Japanese society, and this film takes a hard look at what it has done to the family unit.
