Tattered Cover Film Series - Tokyo Story/ Tôkyô monogatari

Sie FilmCenter/Colfax: Join the Tattered Cover Book Store, UCD’s College of Arts & Media, Colorado Public Radio, and the Sie FilmCenter (in the Lowenstein CulturePlex, next door to the Tattered Cover Colfax Avenue) for an exploration of the world of classic movies, hosted by Colorado Public Radio film critic Howie Movshovitz. All programs begin at 2:00 pm. Admission is free, but tickets are required from the box office. Tickets are available one hour before screening. Parking is avilable in the parking lot off of Elizabeth or Columbine Streets.

This month we’ll see the 1953 Yasujirô Ozu classic Tokyo Story/ Tôkyô monogatari.

Ozu, one of the great masters of cinema, is interested in families going through the normal changes in life. Here, an aging couple travel by train from their placid small town beside a river to see their grown children in Tokyo. It’s a disappointing trip for the parents, and a deeply sad film, made beautiful by Ozu’s extraordinary depth of understanding. (136 minutes))
