Tōkyō monogatari Tokyo story by Yasujirō Ozu( Visual )

30 editions published between 1953 and 2013 in Japanese and English and held by 1,272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tokyo Story is a beautifully nuanced exploration of filial duty, expectation and regret. From the simple tale of an elderly husband and wife's visit to Tokyo to see their grown-up children, Ozu draws a compelling contrast between the measured dignity of age and the hurried insensitivity of a younger generation. Prefiguring Tokyo's Story's generational themes Ozu's finely-honed family drama, Brothers and Sisters of the Toda Family, is also a sharp critique of bourgeois frivolity that achieved great success on its release in war-time Japan. After the death of her husband, Mrs Toda and her youngest daughter receive a frosty welcome from extended family. Duty collides with self-interest in this inclusive satire

Ukigusa monogatari A story of floating weeds( Visual )

4 editions published in 2004 in Japanese and held by 575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1959, Yasujiro Ozu remade his 1934 silent film: A Story of Floating Weeds in color and sound with the cinematographer Kazuo Miyagawa (Rashomon, Ugetsu). Setting his later version in a seaside location, Ozu otherwise preserves the details of his elegantly simple plot wherein an aging actor returns to a small town with his troupe and reunities with his former lover and illegitimate son, a scenario that enrages his current mistress and results in heartbreak for all. A Story of Floating Weeds reveals Ozu in the midst of developing his mode of expression; Floating weeds reveals his distinct style at its pinnacle. In each, the director captures the joy and sadness in everyday life

Tōkyō boshoku Tokyo twilight by Yasujirō Ozu( Visual )

15 editions published between 1957 and 2014 in Japanese and English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ozu's only postwar film to take place in the dead of winter tells of an aging father and his two daughters. The younger has an affair and becomes pregnant. The elder has left her husband and returned with her child to her father. Both are astonished when their mother, presumed dead, turns up alive. In this dark film, Ozu's vision of post-war Japan portrays his theme of the sins of one generation affecting the next, illustrated brilliantly by a series of parallels drawn sensitively between characters, which manages to be both compassionate and scathing. Even the seemingly happy ending has an embedded twist. It depicts Ozu's harsh condemnation of modern Japanese society and family life
