Tokyo Chorus

1931 | JAPAN | 91 min | PG

During Japan’s depression-era Shōwa period, young father Shinji Okajima loses his job and must find a way to provide for his wife Sugako (Emiko Yagumo) and three children.


Featuring stunning performances from child actors Hideo Sugawara and five-year-old Hideko Takamine (who would grow up to become one of Japan’s most legendary actresses), Ozu conjured a personal, empathetic viewpoint of a family who, while struggling, are bound by their bonds.
