AN INN IN TOKYO
(TOKYO NO YADO)
Japan | 1935 | 35mm | 80 min.
Director: Yasujirô Ozu
Cast: Takeshi Sakamoto, Yoshiko Okada, Chôko Iida
In a heartfelt, emotional story that pre-dates Italian neorealism, the homeless wanderer Kihachi (Sakamoto) tries to find a more stable life for himself and his two boys. Their lives are changed when Kihachi meets an old acquaintance and a single, similarly homeless young mother. Presented here with the original synchronized score, Ozu’s final silent movie is one of the director’s finest achievements.
