Still Walking is a family drama and a comedy of manners, in many ways a modern retelling of — and a tribute to — one of the most famous Japanese films of all times, Yasujiro Ozu's Tokyo Story. "This gentle, lovely film is impossible to watch without a lump in the throat" — Peter Bradshaw, the Guardian.
