YasujirÃ´ Ozu directs this 1950s Japanese drama that revolves around ageing, mortality and intergenerational tensions. When elderly couple Tomi and Shukichi Hirayama (Chieko Higashiyama and Chishu Ryu) travel from their rural village home to visit their married son and daughter in Tokyo their reception is disappointing. Met with impatience and selfish indifference by their children and their grandchildren, they are soon packed off to a spa - but when Tomi falls ill, her descendants are forced to re-evaluate their priorities.
