Yasujirō Ozu’s emotionally rich drama, ‘Tokyo Story’ is heralded as number one in this top 15.

So much so, the greatest film critic of all time the late Roger Ebert, recorded Tokyo Story in his famed series of great movies. If that praise wasn’t enough for the all time classic, it has scored 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.

“Subtle and sensitive, Tokyo Story lets the viewer experience the tensions and demands that modern life makes on people – here family members.” —Adoor Gopalakrishnan
