Purchase on AmazonEbert gives Kiyoshi Kurosawa's new movie Tokyo Sonata 3 1/2 stars:

Tokoyo Sonata :: rogerebert.com :: Reviews

What we seem to have are the outlines of a traditional family drama, in which tensions are bottled up, revelations will occur and a crisis will result in either tragedy or resolution. But that's not what we're given by director Kiyoshi Kurosawa, best known for upscale horror films. He almost misleads us in the early scenes, by framing the family dinners in sedate and orderly compositions. We believe we know where "Tokyo Sonata" is going. We are wrong.
