Lavish seven minutes of your Friday on this final scene from Kurosawa’s Tokyo Sonata – you won’t regret it. The films tells the story of a Japanese family whose lives unravel after the father loses his job. In this scene the parents arrive at a prestigious music school to see their son audition. Unaware that he has been using his lunch money to pay for piano lessons, they anxiously take their seats.
