"If in our century there are still sacred things, if there were something like a sacred treasure of the cinema, then for me that would have to be the work of the Japanese director Yasujiro Ozu." In Tokyo-Ga, Wim Wenders travels to the city of his cinematic hero, Yasujiro Ozu, hoping to still find the spirit of the director in the twenty years since his death. What he discovers is a city consuming itself through material desire. The age of Ozu and the simplicity with which he filmed the world around him has disappeared. In its place is a society driven by constant change. Accepting that the cinematic medium has also changed, Wim Wenders transforms his film into a treatise on the nature of recording everyday life.
