About the Authors
  • Ozu's Tokyo Story is generally regarded as one of the finest films ever made. Universal in its appeal, it is also considered to be "particularly Japanese." Exploring its universality and cultural specificity, this collection of specially commissioned essays demonstrates the multiple planes on which the film can be appreciated. Among the topics discussed are Ozu's relationship to aspects of Japanese tradition, situating the film within artistic modes, religious systems and beliefs, and socio-cultural and familial formations; and an analysis of how Ozu has been misunderstood in Western criticism.

    • Features essays by many of the major writers on Japanese cinema in English
    • Includes a translation from the work of Hasumi Shigekiho, one of the most influential Ozu scholars in Japan
    • First book to examine Tokyo Story from a variety of perspectives
