An illustrative example of this - the film "Tokyo Story" - the best, the general view, the work of Ozu. It tells the story of a family whose members are neither noble nor baseness, is in all respects the most ordinary people. The parents come to their children in Tokyo, the mother dies - ordinary, everyday events that happen in every family. But the viewer takes an unusually intact, because, talking about the events in the calmest manner Ozu touches deep, the eternal problem of the inevitable separation of parents and children. Thus, the director goes beyond the national subjects. Ozu seeks to capture the transience of life through rigidly defined artistic techniques. It seems that the very desire to capture the illusory nature of life underlines its transience and deepens our perception.
