From Tokyo Story to Kyoto Story

Warning: Spoilers
Low-budget, little-spoken-of, spiritual sequel to renowned masterwork Tokyo Story.

While it predictably doesn't measure up to the lofty standards of Ozu YasujirĂ´'s work, it still is worthy of its own ambition to be a tribute to that masterwork and a heartfelt praise of humbleness and the real foundations of human life. It is worthy in in every way: aesthetical, artistical, and moral.

Comfy movie
mister_bateman18 December 2020
There isn't much excitement or suspense in this film, it's pretty mellow. But it's a sweet story about love, family and legacy. About the existential question whether to break out or step into your parents' footsteps to keep the family business alive. It's also just nice to watch a civilization that still has its identity, culture and a semblance of community left, even in a bigger city such as Kyoto. There are still multigenerational households and small businesses and people know one another and interact like one big extended family. This no longer exists in the dying West, which has been totally ripped to shreds by multiculturalism and globalism.
