Yasujiro Ozu's Tokyo Chorus

Featuring live accompaniment by Cliff Retallick

“Exquisite and economical, Ozu’s film alternates between brilliantly mounted comic sequences and heartrending working-class realities.” (Janus)

A family story rife with both comedy and misfortune, Ozu’s Tokyo Chorus was the young and already prolific director’s 22nd film. As a father of three struggles during a period of economic depression, Ozu finds comedic reprieve amongst the anxiety.

Dir. Yasujiro Ozu, 1931, 35mm, 90 min.
