I talk about Tokyo Story in a guest post

I talk about Tokyo Story in a guest post

Recently, Ian over at Ian’s Lists, Bits, and Reels invited me with some other fellow bloggers to talk about some great movies through film history.  I wrote about Tokyo Story, which is my favorite foreign film.  Please check out Ian’s post and if you aren’t already follow his blog.



  1. Great post 🙂
    Tokyo Story is next on my list of ‘to watch’ films, and I just know i’m going to love it.

    • Thanks! I highly recommend it. One of my all time favorites.

  2. You’ve got me REALLY interested in Tokyo Story. Never seen that one.

    • I highly recommend it. It’s a great movie and it’s my favorite foreign film. Thanks for commenting.

  3. Ok… I know this is going agains the grain… I saw Tokyo Story a few years ago when a local cinema showed it. I thought it was sweet but a little clunky and over-long. I couldn’t see the greatness. I think I maybe need to see it again.

    • I actually felt the same way when I first saw it, but after watching it again I was amazed by the movie. It really is a film that deserves more than one viewing, though it isn’t the easiest watch. Thanks for commenting.

  4. Great choice of film. I’ve only seen a few Ozu, but for some reason August Afternoon is my favorite of his. I don’t know, I might be crazy. 🙂

    • Thanks! I haven’t seen August Afternoon, I’ll have to check it out. Ozu’s one of my favorite directors.

  5. Well you’ve got me interested! Nice one 🙂

    • Thanks! I highly recommend it.
