description

"An Inn in Tokyo" is the final instalment of Ozu's "Kihachi Trilogy", and also one of his finest silent works. In many ways, it anticipates Vittorio de Sica's Italian neorealist classic "The Bicycle Thieves", as it focuses on the dignity of the individual and the vital details of the Depression in pre-war Japan. Kihachi is struggling with his two young sons as he tries his best to seek work. With the help of an old friend, Kihachi finally manages to find a job. However, in order to help the daughter of a single mother, he goes to steal from the rich. This demolishes all the hopes that he has for his life and the lives of his two young sons.
