Tokyo Story

L. and I just saw  Yasujiro Ozu's Tokyo Story (1953). It's a wonderful movie, and one that everyone has to see.  It's about on old married couple from a provincial town in Japan who travel to Tokyo to visit their children. The children, though happy to see their parents, have no time to spend with them because their jobs and own families keep them busy. 
Though the movie was made more than 50 years ago, anyone who lives far away from their parents may find the theme familiar.
