Tokyo Story screening at Cinema du Parc

Considered as one of the best films ever by various critics, film historians, directors, producers, etc, Tokyo Story will be screening at Cinema du Parc this weekend and a few days next week.

Updated with my thoughts.

It was alright. A quiet family drama that was less boring than expected but I almost fell asleep a few times. Everybody is just so polite. I’m not sure why its considered one of the best films ever. Maybe for it’s time it was something different and new. Probably more interesting for historical and academic purposes.
