Tokyo Story
Yasujiro Ozu | Japan | 1953 | 130m | U | In Japanese with English subtitles

BFI Japan 2021

The elderly Shukishi and his wife, Tomi, take the long journey from their small seaside village to visit their adult children in Tokyo. Their elder son, Koichi, a doctor, and their daughter, Shige, a hairdresser, don't have much time to spend with their aged parents, and so it falls to Noriko, the widow of their younger son who was killed in the war, to keep her in-laws company.

Tokyo Story seems to offer a simple, familiar story: an elderly couple visits their married children in the city, where they are treated inhospitably and shunted off to a spa by their offspring who have little time for them. While the plot may sound rather spartan, Ozu's unique treatment of family and tradition make this a profound and moving masterpiece about life, death, and familial relationships.
 

This screening is part of the Monday Night Film Club. A volunteer or RBC staff member will give a short introduction to a latest release, and everyone is welcome to stay for a post-film discussion.
Free tea, herbal and fruit teas, and coffee will be made available.

The Big Hit / Un Triomphe

Emmanuel Courcol | France | 2020 |106m | N/C 15+

Étienne, an often-out-of-work but endearing actor, runs a theatre workshop in a prison, where he brings together an unlikely troupe of prisoners to stage Samuel Beckett’s classic Waiting for Godot. When he is allowed to take the colourful band of convicts on a tour outside the prison, Étienne finally has the chance to thrive. Each date is a new success and a unique relationship grows between this ad hoc group of actors and their director. But soon comes the final performance in Paris. Will their last night together be the biggest hit of them all? An uplifting comedy inspired by true events.

Screening as part of this year's French Film Festival 2021.
