- PAL format. ''Tokyo-Ga'' is the record of a trip Mr. Wenders made to Japan in the spring of 1983, seeking to learn whether anything remains of the world that Ozu chronicled in his 54 films, including ''Tokyo Story,'' which, to many critics, is the summation of Ozu's work. Mr. Wenders, in voice-over narration, is especially eloquent in describing the Ozu method. With ''extreme economy of means,'' Mr. Wenders says, and reducing cinema to its ''bare essentials,'' meaning a fixed camera, Ozu gave us a vision of the decline of the Japanese family and, with it, the decline of a national identity. - The NY Times.
