Tokyo Story

Tokyo Story ★★★★

The skyline shots felt a bit gratuitous to me, but as long as the scenes were indoors this movie ripped. It's a romanticized portrayal of family but in the literary sense, of how it emphasizes the conflicts without saying them aloud, only hinting at the tensions. It isn't idealized, is what I mean. Very good camerawork too, the kind of story that could hypothetically be told on a stage but the use of shot/reverse shot adds so much.
