Tokyo Story

 (1953)

Tokyo Story Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

When an elderly couple, Tomi and Shukishi, travel from their rural village home to Tokyo to visit their married son and daughter, their reception is disappointing. Met with selfish indifference and impatience by their children and their grandchildren, they are soon packed off to a health spa - but when Tomi falls ill, her descendants are forced to re-evaluate their priorities.

For more about Tokyo Story and the Tokyo Story Blu-ray release, see Tokyo Story Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Chishû Ryû, Chieko Higashiyama, Setsuko Hara, Haruko Sugimura, Sô Yamamura, Kuniko Miyake

Tokyo Story Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.33:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Yasujiro Ozu's Tokyo Story arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of the BFI.

Sourced from elements provided by Criterion, the high-definition transfer conveys pleasing detail and relatively stable contrast levels. Clarity, however, varies quite a bit; there is some inherited softness during selected scenes as well. There are no serious stability issues, but some frame transitions are problematic. I assume that they are also inherited. Edge-enhancement and macroblocking are not a serious issue of concern. There are no traces of heavy noise reduction either. Finally, I must note that there are numerous flecks and small scratches that pop up here and there. To sum it all up, if one takes into account the troubled history of Tokyo Story (the original negative has been long lost), this Blu-ray release probably offers the best possible presentation of this important film that can be had at the moment. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Tokyo Story Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: Japanese LPCM 2.0. For the record, the BFI have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

The Japanese LPCM 2.0 track is pleasing - slightly crisper and better balanced than the Japanese audio track found on the Criterion SDVD release of Tokyo Story - but has a fair share of limitations. For example, occasionally the high-frequencies fluctuate, and mild background hiss is often easy to hear. Once again, however, I must speculate that these limitations are indeed inherited and likely next to impossible to address. For the record, the optional English subtitles are very well done.
