Anything that Donald Richie has his name on it I will get it and read it. But also when it deals with one of the great films of the 20th Century, "Tokyo Story" it's a must. The screenplay on a page by no means replace the actual images on the screen (or on dvd) but it's nice to have it near the Criterion edition of this remarkable piece of work.

Richie wrote the translation and also the notes. If anyone here haven't seen the film, please do so. Ozu is one of the greats.
