Toronto Screenings of TOKYO SONATA

Tokyo Sonata is a portrait of a seemingly ordinary Japanese family. The father, who abruptly loses his job, conceals the truth from his family; the eldest son in college hardly returns home; the youngest son furtively takes piano lessons without telling his parents; and the mother, who knows deep down that her role is to keep the family together, cannot find the will to do so. From the exterior, all is normal and the same. But somehow, a single, unforeseeable chasm has appeared within the family, only to spread ever so quietly and quickly to disintegrate them.

In the hands of world famous director Kiyoshi Kurosawa, known for his thrillers and movies of suspense, this story will probe the dark side of human nature and the social problems that confront contemporary Japan . Kurosawa’s portrayal of the breakdown and redemption of Japan ’s “ordinary family” will be every bit as gripping as his previous works.

Tokyo Sonata will screen at the Royal Cinema in Toronto from Friday, June 26 to Thursday, July 2. Call (416) 534-5252 for schedule information.
