Summary
Regarded by many as Ozu's masterpiece, this film deals with the disintegration of the Japanese family system. An aging couple, Tomi and Sukichi, leave their rural village to visit their children in bustling, post-war Tokyo. They find they are an intrusion in their children's busy lives, and they are sent to a health spa to get them out of the way. The couple's widowed daughter-in-law treats them with kindess and respect. The film is predominantly serious with Ozu's signature motifs which are characteristic of his work in general. There are many shots empty of people interposed between scenes of dramatic action
