Brothers And Sisters Of The Toda Family

Brothers And Sisters Of The Toda Family

Synopsis

Prefiguring Tokyo Story's generational themes, Ozu's finely-honed family drama, Brothers and Sisters of the Toda Family, is a critique of bourgeois frivolity that achieved great success on its release in wartime Japan. After the death of her husband, Mrs Toda and her youngest daughter receive a frosty welcome from extended family. Duty collides with self-interest in this inclusive satire.
